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.

"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…
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.
I have absolutely no idea where this one stands in the franchise. Is it number two, three? They're all pretty much the same in any case, so does it really matter? This one I'm afraid doesn't give us anything new, and even with hottie Eva Mendes on board, this is as dull as arse.
So Brian is on the run and gets himself hooked up with an old friend and ex-con Tyrese Gibson. Together they're attempting to clear their names by working with Government agencies to bring down a Miami drug-lord. Guess what, the drug-lord is into street racing and is looking for some drivers to help transport his ill-gotten gains. It's again all about the cars and the racing…
Schwacher Nachfolger. Uninteressantere Charaktere, langweilige Story und lahme Action.
Not as good as the original. Still fun!
A step back in virtually every way from the excellent original. Poor John Singleton quickly lost his footing as a filmmaker after dropping the more personal approach of his fist couple of films to become a director-for-hire. There are a few stylistic attempts to give the film the look of an arcade game, but it never coalesces into anything interesting.
"He did the stare and drive on you, didn't he? He got that from me."
Easily the weakest film in the franchise.
No movie titled 2 Fast 2 Furious should have the right to be good, but this is kinda good. Dumb, but surprisingly visually sound. Characters are often centre-framed and they glissen and bounce off the colour and symmetry of its rectangular backgrounds. Either bright costumes are set in front of stale, bleak colours, or stale costumes are set to poppy, bright backgrounds; sometimes even transitioning between the two within the same shot. Street racing is still boring.
Things start getting cartoony and lighter here. Tyrese steals the show.
Dumber than the first one, sometimes in a good way and sometimes in a bad way. Some of the action sequences are enjoyably over-the-top, and it's nice that the supporting cast actually contributes in some way this time around. But I couldn't possibly have cared less about the story and characters. There's no life in this movie when cars aren't driving fast.
Liked it a lot.
I am participating in Smiler Grogan's Scavenger Hunt #18 1/8: Comedies, Classics, and Continuations .
These are films that I've seen over the years that I've either liked or loved, but A LOT of people…
