Critic Reviews

  1. So what do we have here? Lots of cars going very fast.
  2. Lacks the charismatic presence of Vin Diesel, who has priced himself right out of the franchise. Without Diesel, there's not much gas, at least not from the nonvehicular elements.
  3. Without a plausible script, crisp dialogue or rounded characters, the majority of the picture will sag gracelessly.
  4. My hand trembles slightly as I type these words, but the truth is that while watching 2 Fast 2 Furious, the follow-up to the pleasurably cheap-thrills sleeper "The Fast and the Furious," I realized just how much I miss Vin Diesel.

    2 Fast 2 Furious is just 2 lame, 2 tame, and 2 much like a video game.

    The script, and the actors' breezy performances, work inasmuch as they get us to the chase on time.
  7. Unlike original director Rob Cohen, Singleton has no gift for giddy action and his movie is a crashing bore.
  8. The film has enough wild driving to satisfy any "French Connection" fan or "Bullitt" buff, but there's precious little for anyone else to enjoy. 2 foolish + 2 flashy = 4 get it!
  9. It's a kind of "Miami Vice" with many more carz and numberz where all the adjectives used 2 go.
  10. Unfortunately, all of these supremely expressive vehicles come equipped with drivers, principally a pair of crash-test dummies played by Paul Walker and Tyrese, whose low-gear dialogue makes the whine of engines sound like the highest poetry.

    It’s all very nice to look at, sure, but pretty colors and molten intercoolers aside, 2 Fast 2 Furious is about as exciting as a Yugo in quicksand.

    This movie only takes a few minutes to crash and burn, but more than an hour and a half to realize it.

    Certainly trashy, but, stripped of Mr. Diesel's services and directed by John Singleton, it's a no-go Yugo in muscle-car sheet metal.

    It's a terrible movie, stuck in plot idiocies and big, noisy set pieces like a tire mired in mud.

This cash grab sequel runs on a lame plot featuring one dimensional characters blabbering out terrible dialogue from a very weak script. The chase sequences were fun... but that's about it.

Makes it even worse when the only person who could lift at least a bit more the series is absent. Full Review »
