2 Fast 2 Furious is the 2003 sequel to The Fast and the Furious, the second film in the series and also the second film to the first trilogy. It stars Paul Walker, Tyrese Gibson, Eva Mendes, Devon Aoki, and Chris Bridges; and was directed by John Singleton. The soundtrack was composed by David Arnold. It is the only film in the series not to feature Vin Diesel in the cast, though his character Dominic Toretto is referred to in the film.

Paul Walker returns as ex-cop Brian O'Conner who teams up with his ex-con pal Roman Pearce (Gibson). The duo transport a shipment of dirty money for shady Miami-based import-export dealer Carter Verone (Cole Hauser), while working with undercover agent Monica Fuentes (Mendes) to bring Verone down.

Synopsis

Brian O'Connor, the disgraced cop from the first film, is on the run because he let Dominic Toretto escape. He comes to Miami to start a new life. Here he makes new friends Tej Parker an ex-street racer and well-known car tuner Jimmy as well as Suki - also a street racer. O'Connor is now known by his street name "The Bullet", and competes with fellow street racers in high stakes races to win money utilizing the skills he learned as a member of Toretto's now disbanded team.

One night after winning a race, he is caught by US Customs agents after his car is disabled by the fictional harpoon-like ESD (Electronic Disruption Device) that is deployed by US Customs Agent Markham (James Remar). He is arrested and his former boss FBI Agent Bilkins makes a deal with him saying that if he accepts to take part in a mission, his criminal record will be wiped clean.

O'Connor and Bilkins then travel to Barstow, California where O'Connor proposes the deal to his childhood friend and ex-con Roman Pearce (Tyrese). Together their mission involves working undercover as street racers for a South American (Argentine) drug lord - Carter Verone (Cole Hauser), with help from Monica Fuentes (Eva Mendes) an undercover U.S. Customs agent who becomes Carter's love interest. They win a highly charged "audition" race and strike a deal with Verone, who stated, "Drive the package to the Keys and I'll personally hand over 100Gs($100,000) at the finish line". Roman Pearce requests that the prize be $100,000 for both himself and O'Connor.

This leads to several scuffs and car sequences throughout the movie, along with some spectacular car races. During the course of the movie O'Connor and Pearce begin to realize the major trouble they are in and ask Tej to arrange a race for "pink slips" with two of the racers from the audition race earlier in the movie; O'Connor and Pearce win Korpi's 1969 Yenko Camaro and Darden's 1970 Challenger R/T.

Later on that night O'Connor and Pearce arrive at Verone's nightclub so Verone can "persuade" a police detective named Whitworth into keeping the local police away from O'Connor and Pearce so they may transport the money (which involves using a champagne bucket to cover a huge rat on Whitworth's chest and using a blow torch to have the rat scratch and bite Whitworth). The next morning they embark on the mission in their Mitsubishis with Verone's money in the trunks and two of his henchmen riding along. During the transportation of Verone's money the corrupt Detective Whitworth calls in the army of police units he has waiting nearby. During the chase a police helicopter arrives and two police swat use ESD on the Mitsubishis and only hitting the Evo but Brian removes the ESD hook and throws it on a police car causing it to lose control and they lead the police to a warehouse complex. The police surround the front of the garage area so O'Connor's and Pearce's street racer friends create a "scramble" diversion allowing O'Connor and Pearce to sneak away in the Camaro and Challenger continuing their mission. First to be driven out from the garage were 4 new Dodge Rams to ram the police cars, then hundreds of cars, including O'Connor and Pearce. As the drama unfolds, Verone tries to escape aboard his yacht after informing Monica that he knew she was an undercover U.S. Customs agent. While aboard the yacht he scolds her on her slip-up for informing U.S. Customs agents about Verone's intention to flee the country via a secluded airfield. The finale occurs with O'Connor's Camaro jumping off of a nearby ramp and landing on the top of the yacht to save Monica. At the end Verone is arrested and the duffle bags carrying his drug money are recovered, save for an undisclosed amount having been secretly stolen by both O'Connor and Pearce.

[edit] Critical reception

2 Fast 2 Furious was mixed, scoring a "Rotten" 38% on Rotten Tomatoes. A.O. Scott of the New York Times called it "among the most lethargic action movies I have ever seen", while Richard Roeper said "Director John Singleton [goes] through the paces with a story that was old by the second season of Miami Vice.

Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times, however, gave the movie a positive review, remarking: "It doesn't have a brain in its head, but it's made with skill and style and, boy, is it fast and furious."[10]
