Storyline

The Japanese ambassaor is visiting Marseilles to view the city police's anti-gang tactics. During the visit, however, he is kidnapped by a group working for the Japanese yakuza. Young officer Emilien is determined to rescue the ambassador and officer Petra (his girlfriend), who was also kidnapped, and restore the honor of his department. Once again, speed demon taxi-driver Daniel (from the first Taxi movie) is called upon to save the day with his high-speed driving skills. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Funny!
14 March 2003 | by (Brighton, England) – See all my reviews

As usual, the IMDB users who feel they belong to the upper eschilons of film society have mocked this, a film which is genuinely funny.

From the start the film is funny - a rally car being overtaken by a taxi - 'Tourists!' as he calls them. Some great exhibition driving, good stunts and a black impenetrable car which starts when someone says ninja to it.

Some good gags, good laughs and overall a very funny film. Although I feel it loses some of its charm in translation, my very limited knowledge of French helped me appreciate a bit more than I would have.
