Taxi 2 is an action-comedy. No serious drama, interesting story or a Oscar-winning comedy. Just a ordinary, very funny comedy.
Samy Naceri and Frederic Diefenthal return when a Japanese minister comes to France for some kind of new defense strategy. Of course, that strategy has to be showed, and than it goes wrong. The Japanese minister is kidnapped and the police tries with the help of Samy Naceri to get him back.
The final of the film is a bit overdone, when almost a dozen police-cars hit each other near to the Eiffel tower. Absolutely not realistic, but that's not such a bad thing, isn't it? It's the result of a great car-chase before, and the things that happen then are so dumb but so funny; irresistible. The greatest moment of the movie is when Samy Naceri, Frederic Diefenthal, some Japanese girl and the military father of Samy Naceri's girlfriend jump out of a plane. And when they come down...great, great, great, great!
Taxi 2 is a real must-see. Typically French, but great fun.
