2 Fast 2 Furious
How Fast Do You Want It?
It's a major double-cross when former police officer Brian O'Conner teams up with his ex-con buddy Roman Pearce to transport a shipment of "dirty" money for shady Miami-based import-export dealer Carter Verone. But the guys are actually working with undercover agent Monica Fuentes to bring Verone down.
The one where Tyrese eats a lot of sandwiches.
The best parts of this have kind of a cheap cough syrup vibe that keeps growing on me. Plus, Tyrese.
One of the most yawn inducing films I've ever seen, 2 Fast 2 Furious rarely has any race sequences, but rather focuses on its "story". That's my biggest problem with the film. It tries way too hard at being something that's supposed to be taken seriously, which obviously doesn't work whatsoever. But it would've been fine if the story was interesting. But no, the story is lazy, boring, and just downright stupid.
By the time the second act rolled around, I didn't care at all during the film. Nothing original nor enjoyable is present, this sequel should've just stayed in the garage.
Part 2 of One Last Ride
"Ejecto seato, cuz!"
What the hell is 2 Fast 2 Furious? Is it a masterpiece, a one of a kind experience, or just a really shitty movie with some of the worst dialogue ever?
It is all three of those things, actually.
2 Fast 2 Furious is an atrocious movie, but it’s something that managed to entertain the living shit out of me from beginning to end. It’s like a train wreck that consists of a train plowing through a minivan that holds a soccer mom and her three little kids and their little dog too. I can’t even begin to fathom what the outcome of that sort of…
it's Fast and the Furious canon that Brian and Roman were a couple, right?
Part 2 of ONE LAST RIDE
A LOT more fun than the first one, but the IQ level dropped significantly, which is saying a lot because the first film was dumb as bricks. You can see some of the franchise we know today in this film, as it tries to distance itself a little from the racing aspect, even though it's in a few scenes. Also, I thought Paul Walker and Tyrese Gibson had much better chemistry than Paul and Vin did in the first one.
But stylistically, the two films couldn't be any different. The first film aimed for more as a hardcore, manly racing movie, whereas this was more or less a spoof of cheesy 80's TV shows…
This movie was 2 fun.
It might not be as good as the original, but it still manages to be a solid film due to the execution of its plot. Recommend
The Good: After falling with in a bunch of street-racing hijackers, former police officer Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker) seeks refuge in the company of Tej Parker (Chris "Ludacris" Bridges) and similarly-minded car enthusiasts in Miami in John SIngleton's 2 Fast 2 Furious. It's not long before Brian is called back into service by law enforcement; he and his childhood friend/current-day enemy Roman Pearce (Tyrese Gibson) are tasked with gathering enough evidence to bring down a ruthless drug lord (Cole Hauser - in brownface, of course). 2 Fast 2 Furious gets a lot of hate, but it is on the same level as - if not a little better than - its predecessor. Singleton's movie tries…
Oh, it tried...
Sidenote, Ludacris's outfits made me cry. So did most of the dialogue...
Fun factor weighed came in, in the fact that it was fun to make fun of.
Terrible from start to finish. And the car chase at the end? Hal Needham points and laughs from heaven.
En toen was Fast & Furious ineens een cartoon.
Paul Walker is terug als Brian O’Conner en woont nu in Miami. Samen met jeugdvriend Roman Pearce (Tyrese Gibson) vormt hij een team om een drugsexporteur te stoppen. Alleen op die manier worden hun overtredingen door de politie door de vingers gezien.
Het verhaal is vrij krankzinnig, zeker als blijkt dat de drugsbaas een soort James Bond-slechterik is, die een rat inzet om zijn vijanden angst in te boezemen. Hij is niet het enige personage wat uit een tekenfilm had kunnen komen. Roman Pearce blijkt een clown die het alleen maar over eten heeft en de races (met fel gekleurde auto’s) hadden bijna uit Speed Racer kunnen komen.
2 Fast 2 Furious…
When this first came out, I refused to watch it. It just looked horrible, and they couldn't even get Vin Diesel to return--and it seemed like they just got Tyrese as a cheap substitute for him. But, after seeing Tyrese's characters in 5, 6, and 7, it was clear that he wasn't just a Dominic Toretto knockoff.
So, 12 years after it came out, and 5 movies later, I finally watched this. And though it was not AS bad as I thought it would be, it's still a weak movie. Some of the stunts are fun, and the racing is a little more intense this time, but there's not many reasons to care. The acting is really bad in this…
TOO FAST FOR YALL
I wonder if I were to tell Tyrese or Ludacris (back then) that by doing this movie, ten or so years later they would go on to be in one of the most successful franchises...
They'll probably call me crazy.
In fact I can't believe it.

On Facebook last night, I discovered a picture that was relentlessly amusing. It read 'replace one word in a movie…
