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>

a funny movie
21 November 2000 | by (Kiel, Germany) – See all my reviews

I spent a nice time watching this movie. I was laughing nearly all the time. Although I can speak French but it was not enough to understand many of the wordplays which are also surely not appropriately translatable in the subtitles. As usual in the French comedy they have to mock of the authorities like the government, the police or the army. Even the French president and prime minister did not escape this fate. Generally it's a movie to have fun in it . Since the movie takes place in south France the Arab immigrants has to show up in it with their accent. Many of the dialogues were in fact a critic against things that happen in France like among others the maltreatment of some foreigners by the police.

There is nothing special concerning the scenario or the direction. Anyway one cannot expect to see a movie with a totally coherent scenario. It's rather a light movie for having fun not in a totally stupid manner as is the case in many comedies. The actors played there roles in an appropriate manner also without any special or outstanding acting.
