One of the reasons that original composer Mark Mancina did not return, is that Michael Bay instructed him to only come up with certain "action beats" for the film, and not to compose melodic music, like he had with the original. Unhappy with this decision, Mancina left the project, and was replaced by regular Jerry Bruckheimer collaborator Trevor Rabin. See more »

This movie was a hell of a lot of fun to watch. The action sequences were really well done, and there was tons of them. It was a lot more violent than the first one as I noticed. I thought the scene with all the cadavers was really unnecessary. It was kind of gross. And the chemistry between Will Smith and Martin Lawrence is great. The arguments really reflect from the first one. I was really enjoying the tense scenes where the cars were flying off the truck. A great movie. 8 out of 10.
