Action Adventure - This is a car racing movie designed for maximum appeal for teens and young adults, particularly males. There is a lot of car action like the first film, but this time the tone is far less serious and a lot more comic and lighthearted.

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Very Poor "On its own merit, this movie should have bypassed theaters, video stores, and cable on its straight-to-the-garbage dump spinout.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Good "2 Fast 2 Furious is a video game crossed with a buddy movie, a bad cop-good cop movie, a Miami druglord movie, a chase movie and a comedy. It doesn't have a brain in its head, but it's made with skill and style and, boy, is it fast and furious.''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Average "At least 2 Fast is self-aware enough to know that it's trash, which is worth half a bonus point. Lack of pretension helps the viewer get over the fact that this is just another retread.''

TV Guide Online  Full Review
Below Average "...2 shallow 4 words, which is only as it should be: THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS (2001) didn't make its megamillions by being intellectually challenging.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

These are some great reviews from this movie's target audience of teens and young adults. It's obvious they enjoyed 2 Fast 2 Furious very much. And the ladies enjoyed it just as much as the guys, so 2 Fast 2 Furious makes a great date movie.

Adults also enjoyed it, especially the ladies. Adult males rated it the lowest, but most still rated it high enough that I can recommend it to them.

The bottom line, virtually everyone will enjoy 2 Fast 2 Furious.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
Sorry, we were not given an advance screening of this movie.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
SPEED.

It's easy to get. And it's as close as the nearest set of high-performance wheels...

Brian O'Connor (PAUL WALKER), now a disgraced cop, fell victim to it and he's now paving the price.

As far as his former bosses and FBI brass are concerned, the hothead undercover officer threw one of their largest investigations ever. His loyalties tested while infiltrating the fly-by-night, high-speed world of Los Angeles import street racing, O'Connor blew his own cover and let the ringleader a big-rig hijacking operation walk-more precisely, motor off in his own custom performance racer. O'Connor's decision allowed him to keep his honor, but lost him his badge and any chance of redemption in the process.

Now, it's a different city, a different time and one last chance for O'Connor.

Seems the Feds in Miami have had one helluva time collaring Carter Verone (COLE HAUSER), a flashy businessman using his import/export business as cover for an international money laundering cartel. Customs have had Verone under intense surveillance for more than a year with nothing more to show for it than the kingpin's link to illegal street racing. Their backs against the wall and time running out, officials put out a call for O'Connor to do what he does best-talk the talk and push the metal.

But the rule-breaking loner has his own demands before taking on the job that may restore him his badge. Unhappy with the list of sorry possibilities presented as potential partners, he insists on recruiting his childhood friend and now ex-con Roman Pearce (TYRESE), an accomplished criminal with an aptitude for barrier-shattering speed. The Feds on the case, headed by Agent Markham (JAMES REMAR), offer Pearce a deal-work with O'Connor and his impressive rap sheet will disappear.

Now, it's a last chance for both, ex-con and ex-cop, and their ticket out of disgrace is bringing down Verone. But lines become blurred once again for O'Connor with the appearance of undercover agent Monica Fuentes (EVA MENDES), the key to entering Verone's world who may herself be in bed with the shady entrepreneur.

The new models are in. This time, on the hot streets of Miami-guns, murderers, crooked police, sweet wheels. And one fugitive ex-cop with a very bad habit and with very little to lose.
