    Detailed Description
    (Manufacturer # MHV61106512BR )

      Vin Diesel opted to not appear in the sequel to the film the shot him to stardom in the first place, The Fast and the Furious. With the character of Dominic Toretto out of the picture, 2 Fast 2 Furious concentrates exclusively on the latest exploits of undercover agent Brian O'Connor, played by Paul Walker. In addition, with director Rob Cohen passing, producers have added a dash of credibility to the sequel by hiring John Singleton to helm. What does completely remain from the first film is the presence of fast-living underground street-racing gangs. Moving from Los Angeles to Miami, O'Connor is looking to redeem himself after the events of the first movie, so he again goes undercover to infiltrate another group of thuggish car enthusiasts. This time around he's enlisted the help of ex-con Roman Pierce (Tyrese) and fellow agent Monica Celemente (Eva Mendes) to bring down Carter Verone (Cole Hauser), an importer/exporter who heads up a massive drug trafficking operation. Heading up the supporting cast are hip-hop stars Ludacris and Fabolous. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

      AMG Rating


        With its Miami Beach setting, cadre of evil-druglord villains, and gravity-defying car chases, director John Singleton's follow-up to 2001's sleeper hit The Fast and the Furious isn't really trying to live up to its predecessor so much as it's attempting to be the big-screen equivalent of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. In that respect, it can only fail. The Playstation title boasts a better cast than the Vin Diesel-less 2 Fast 2 Furious, not to mention more-authentic production design, visually coherent stunts, and -- most importantly -- a keen awareness of its own clichs. But perhaps that's an unfair comparison. To its credit, 2 Fast substitutes an irrepressible, off-the-cuff turn from Tyrese for the MIA Diesel, and Singleton doesn't try to downplay the various ethnicities of his cast the way Rob Cohen did with the first film. Of course, this means that whitebread lead Paul Walker seems even squarer than he did last time around, and as a result, his buddy-buddy rapport with Tyrese comes off less like 48 Hours and more like a middling episode of Fox's Fastlane. (Accentuating the TV feel is Singleton's reliance on David Arnold's cheesy score.) Still, Singleton's able to score enough points with his kinetic-if-ridiculous street-racer opening to make one think that there still might be some life left in this franchise after all. ~ Michael Hastings, Rovi
