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.

"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.
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…
You were right and I was wrong. We should have gone and seen it in theaters. I was naughty for making fun of you for being a F&F fan. They are decent little action movies.
I'm sorry. It won't happen again.
I thought this one was one of the worst out of the franchise just because I didn't like where it was going in the movie. But it still had it moments at least it's not as bad as Tokyo dift
GAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRBAGE, who would have thought a fast and furious movie could be so boring. Apart from one torture scene that was effective and the banter between Paul and Tyrese, this movie has absolutely nothing going for it whatsoever.
I liked this one marginally more than the first one. The characters are still pretty one-dimensional, but at least there is a better plot and cooler stunts. It's fine but it's not great.
This motoring action sequel lacks Diesel, managing to stall throughout thanks to a script as idiotic as the title. This 107 minute slog is packed with awful dialogue, a need to either sexualize most of the female characters, or make them largely helpless. Still, at least Paul Walker shares decent chemistry with Tyrese Gibson, even if the latters performance veers into wooden territory.
Bruh. Bruh. Bruh.
Someone should count the number of times "Bruh" is uttered. It's an impressive number, bruh.
The first scene is a depressing statement about society. It's a bunch of illegal street racers and their equivalent of roadies amassed in a street late at night with terrible music. The women walk around like they just got done filming a Girls Gone Wild segment, and they're treated correspondingly. The dialogue is bizarre, like some alien's interpretation of MTV:
"When are you going to pop my clutch?"
"As soon as you get the right set of tools."
When they finally race, Ludacris (let's not pretend he has a character) radios in to an accomplice who has the controls of a toll…
The last thing Marcus Theatres needs right now is promotional help, particularly help with their poorly-conceived ideas. I've raised some of the numerous thoughts their condescending "Ladies Night" promotion spews into the mind already. A Fast and the Furious retrospective however is an idea I can get behind.
The program, which began last week, plays every Wednesday thereafter through Fast & Furious 6 (Apr 1). Beyond the (occasionally violently) changing aesthetic experience that a program by series release date yields is the inevitable: someone would have to endure the eponymous indulgences of 2 Fast 2 Furious. Absent Vin Diesel, whose gruffness bequeathed Rob Cohen's The Fast and the Furious with gravitas amid the ludicrous world of illegal street racing, 2 Fast…
2 Fast 2 Furious is simply miserable. Lacking entertaining action and being completely forgettable, there's a reason why this is my least favorite film of the franchise. Not even Tyrese could save this movie.
Grade: D+ (2.1/5)
