2 Fast 2 Furious ★★★½

Similar to the first film, but with a better supporting cast, better action, and more fully realized world. I especially like how Paul Walker seems equally at home in the first and second installments - Tyrese Gibson, Eva Mendes, and Ludacris frontline a great supporting cast, and the story is once again cliche-ridden, but directed by John Singleton without cynicism, which makes for great, NOS-fuelled blockbuster fun.
