  1. 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.
  2. So what do we have here? Lots of cars going very fast.
  3. Without a plausible script, crisp dialogue or rounded characters, the majority of the picture will sag gracelessly.
  4. 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!

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

    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.
  7. Unlike original director Rob Cohen, Singleton has no gift for giddy action and his movie is a crashing bore.

    The script, and the actors' breezy performances, work inasmuch as they get us to the chase on time.
  9. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. It's a kind of "Miami Vice" with many more carz and numberz where all the adjectives used 2 go.
  13. 10
    It's a terrible movie, stuck in plot idiocies and big, noisy set pieces like a tire mired in mud.
  14. 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.

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.

    I'd go so far as to say that if you really liked this film, you have a career working in fast food to look forward to. Get it? Fast food? 2I'd go so far as to say that if you really liked this film, you have a career working in fast food to look forward to. Get it? Fast food? 2 Fast 2 Furious takes it for granted that the audience is comprised of morons. And maybe we are-all those bad video games have gone to our head. If the souped up, day-glo cars could have driven themselves, the movie could easily have done without the actors. Beautiful people and beautiful cars in a movie that won't tax the brain cells.
