In a 2015 article with Variety, Vin Diesel revealed that he turned down a 25 million dollar offer from Universal Studios to return for this film. Diesel reasoned, that the premise of the film did not work, stating: "Universal Studios didn't take a Francis Ford Coppola approach to it. They approached it like they did sequels in '80s and '90s, when they would drum up a new story, unrelated for the most part, and slap the same name on it." See more »

I love this movie, but honestly speaking, the title amuses me a bit. It looks a like an email/text message. Anyway, I guess it's a creative way to insert the "2" in the title. Haha! But anyway, this is a great sequel to its predecessor, even though I find it weird that Dominic (Vin Diesel) is absent in this movie.
This film centers on Brian (Paul Walker) as he reunites with his childhood friend Roman (Tyrese Gibson) in their mission to take down a crime boss. Together they get help from Monica (Eva Mendes).
The opening race is adrenaline-pumped and very exciting, but that's illegal, so no copycats, for God's sake, okay? I love the chemistry Brian and Roman develops. Before I forget, Roman is funny! He's the comic relief in this movie. Car sequences, which are the main selling points of this movie, are well-choreographed and beautifully executed. They may not happen in real life, but they're very great to watch.
If this movie doesn't fall into a genre that you're looking for, then just get the hell outta here. If you're looking for action, some comedy, thrills, and pumps, congratulations! You're in the right place! Hop in!
