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>

Émilien Coutant-Kerbalec: Ha-ha-ha-ha, oh yes, Marseille is complicated. Full of small streets. And you'll see that the cells aren't big either.

Amusing and spectacular sequel with breathtaking stunt work
1 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

This entertaining movie contains lots of fun, action, laughters and impressive races . The film is developed in Marseille where again we find the sympathetic young named Daniel, (Sami Naceri) driving a spectacular taxi . The foul-mouthed cabbie join forces with the bungler inspector named Emilien(Frederic Diefenthal). Daniel is the fastest Cabman with an attractive fiancée(Marion Cotillard), while Emilian goes after a gorgeous Inspector woman(Emma Sjoberg) and commanded by chief Commissaire(Bernard Farcey). The police Inspector is a complete inept behind the car and Daniel helps him to investigate the kidnapping a Japanase high authority and his love interest ,Inspector Sjoberg. When Daniel has problems , then he's forced to collaborate with Emilien. They pursue a gang of Japanese who attempt to kidnap the Minister of Defense and when they are on the heels of the band , the crooks drive a speed demon pursued by the taxi in a fast and furious race . This is an action-comedy film , chronicling the relationship between the narrow-minded cabdriver and the botcher cop ,among others amusing happenings.

The motion picture mingles noisy action , car pursuits, humor with tongue in cheek, shootouts, rip roaring and lots of amusement. From the beginning to the end the action packed is fast moving, provides fast and furious entertainment with overwhelming scenes. Displays nonstop action and is extremely bemusing and hilarious. There are chases galore in breathtaking velocity and with impressive finale race cars, filmed by magnificent stunts and excellent visual effects. Colorful cinematography and appropriate musical score fitting to action by Khemya. The picture is lavishly produced by great producer and director Luc Besson and well directed by Gerard Krawczyk (Fanfan La Tulipe, Wasabi, Heroines). Followed by more sequels Taxi 3(2003) y Taxi 4(2007), all directed by Gerard Krawczyc and same actors ; furthermore an American version with Queen Lafitah, Henry Simmons and Jimmy Fallon, being directed by Tim Story. The flick will appeal to adrenaline enthusiasts and those young people looking for amusing and strong emotions. It's a must see for the cars aficionados.
