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

I just felt like mindless entertainment yesterday and this fills the bill nicely. Luc Besson follows up his successful Taxi with taxi 2, and a new director Gérard Krawczyk (The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc), who he will keep for the next two sequels.
The regulars are back: Samy Naceri as Daniel, Frédéric Diefenthal as Émilien, Marion Cotillard as Lilly, and Emma Wiklund as Petra. Jean-Christophe Bouvet (Marie Antoinette) joins the cast as a General and Lilly's father.
A family meeting with Lilly's parents is interrupted as Daniel once again is thrust into the savior role and works with Emilien to save the Japanese ambassador, who is inspecting a new police vehicle and anti-gang tactics. Of course, the Yakuza is involved, as they do not want these things in Japan.
The usual action and laughs with some karate thrown in. Petra dazzles us with her moves sans underwear, along with Japanese beauty Tsuyu Shimizu.
This film sees Emilien make the moves towards Petra, while Daniel's love life with Lilly is constantly interrupted.
Good clean fun as only the French can do.
