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>

Fast, furious and fun!
24 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is definitely better than the original, it's more efficiently directed, faster in pace and funnier. The plot may be predictable, there are occasional moments of weak dialogue and Marion Cotilard who was so sublime as Edith Piaf in La Vie En Rose is given little to do as Lilly. That said, it is very funny, with some good gags. Plus the french locations are stunning, the car chases are awesome and the martial arts sequences are absolutely great. Other pluses are the snappy direction, a cool soundtrack and a smoking hot Emma Sjoberg (aka Wiklund). Also the pace is faster, and other than Sjoberg another standout was Bernard Farcy as Chief Inspector Gilbert who was hilarious at times. All in all, this is a fun sequel, and better than the first film in my opinion. 7/10 Bethany Cox
