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.

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…
The second instalment in The Fast and the Furious franchise, 2 Fast 2 Furious continues the journey of Brian O'Conner and further expands the realms of this series by bringing in some new characters who replace the cast of the previous chapter and event though it stays true to its street racing roots, the whole experience is far too inferior to its predecessor.
Following the events of the first film, 2 Fast 2 Furious follows Brian as he now finds himself being chased by the FBI and is eventually caught by the US Customs Service which offers him a clean slate in exchange for his assistance in bringing down a Miami-based drug lord. Agreeing to help, Brian enlists the help…
it's Fast and the Furious canon that Brian and Roman were a couple, right?
The best parts of this have kind of a cheap cough syrup vibe that keeps growing on me. Plus, Tyrese.
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 is so comparable to 101 Dalmatians, except instead of people that look like their dogs we have people that look like their cars.
Decidi ver qualéquié a do Velozes e Furiosos. Vi o primeiro há 13 anos, ainda em VHS, e gostei TANTO, que fiz questão de não ver nenhuma das 200 continuações. Mas confesso que fiquei curioso com a repercussão dos últimos filmes e, mesmo imaginando não ser necessário, resolvi fazer o serviço completo e checar o que anda rolando desde o começo.
Ontem revi o primeiro filme e o que não me empolgou há 13 anos, continua não empolgando hoje em dia. Descobri que o pouco que lembrava, era basicamente tudo o que tinha naquele filme. Achei que havia mais, mas nope. Ele é basicamente um videoclipe de rap dos anos 90 com 1h40 de duração. Há duas cenas de ação…
An endearingly naff sequel filled with unintentional comedy gold, there are some quality car chases though and action set pieces, it also has in Cole hauser the most unconvincing drug lord I have seen in a film. Good fun nonetheless.
Despite its stupid fucking title, 2 Fast 2 Furious 2: Electric Boogaloo outperforms its predecessor in terms of acting, action and writing, though it still feels a bit dated. Tyrese's character may not be the most well-written character in cinematic history, but he's entertaining. And his acting is better than just about everyone in the first film.
Again, nostalgia may be (and probably is) the reason I still enjoy this movie so much, but I genuinely believe that this is a solid action movie overall. Admittedly, the focus is more on story than on cars and the racing thereof, but that works in its favor since this is, you know, a movie and all.
The cars are less cartoonishly-painted this…
Decent actioner that took a bit to get going, but had a very solid, exciting third act. Diverting.
A follow up. Again, nice cars (some) beautiful people and a lot of racing. Which makes this an expoitation movie, as the story matters not as far as it is in there.
A downgrade in not only the directing of the race/chase scenes but also in the care for its characters.
I wanted to keep track with how many times "bro" and "brah" was said, but I lost count.
The more of these early F&F installments I watch, the more surprised I get that they managed to keep the series alive. The first movie was a flawed B-movie with some heart and when they got a chance to develop the concept they chose to turn it into a mix of a second tier racing video game and a mismatch buddy action with the charming white guy and funny black loudmouth. It's extremely tacky and feels like a failed TV pilot as it ends on a the kind of optimistic "let's make a sequel" note that is usually left hanging. No wonder Tokyo Drift distanced itself from this.
Disregarding those strange choices and John Singleton's terrible direction, this is entertaining.…
My Fast Furious or whatever you call it marathon continues with the sequel 2 Fast 2 Furious. I actually liked it better than the first, at the very least there was more of a cohesive story. Really this could be a stand alone movie as not much relates back to the first movie in any meaningful way. This was once again a car movie obviously but this one didn't take itself as seriously as the first one so it made for a funner movie. It is interesting to see that acting progression of Paul Walker, he was terrible in the first one and is slightly better in this one. I am hoping by 6 or 7 he can at least come close to Steve McQueen but I am not holding my breath.

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