Mr. Church reunites the Expendables for what should be an easy paycheck, but when one of their men is murdered on the job, their quest for revenge puts them deep in enemy territory and up against an unexpected threat.
Ex-con Jensen Ames is forced by the warden of a notorious prison to compete in our post-industrial world's most popular sport: a car race in which inmates must brutalize and kill one another on the road to victory.
EX LAPD cop Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker) teams up with his ex-con friend Roman Pearce (Tyrese Gibson) and works with undercover U.S. Customs Service agent Monica Fuentes (Eva Mendes) to bring Miami-based drug lord Carter Verone (Cole Hauser) down. Written by
During filming, the transmissions for several of the cars had to be constantly rebuilt. These were sent out to a local shop in Miami named Alonso Transmission to be rebuilt and delivered back to the production crew who would then install them back into the vehicles themselves. Due to the production schedule, these had to be rebuilt on a very tight schedule, and the shop would sometimes have to work weekends and overnight to get them rebuilt in time. The large garage seen toward the end of the film was the actual working location the production company used to swap out transmissions once they received them back. Security was so tight at this facility that before being allowed in to deliver the transmissions, the shop representative was checked to make sure there were no recording devices and even had to surrender his cell phone. As of January 2016, Alonso Transmission still has a letter sent to them by the production company after filming had wrapped on display in their waiting area. The letterhead lists the movie title as "The Fast and the Furious 2." See more »

This one was way better than the first, I don't care what all you other pladough brains say. It had better cars, women, plot, bad guys, and action. You should still watch the first one before you see this, even if it wasn't as good, if you want to get some of the stuff they talk about in this film. As far as the plot goes, it's a lot more interesting than a boring theft of electronic equipment. You're much more rather to watch a movie where the good guys are up against meaner and more dangerous bad guys who really have the thrill of danger in them. Actually only Verone did a good job showing that off, but the rest didn't do bad. Action sequences are what really smoke the original. Finally, a circuit race, and more amounts of races instead of cheesy talking for almost a whole act. I'm glad they improved on the races and action, otherwise I would have hated this movie. God Bless you, John Singleton.
