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.
Frank Martin puts the driving gloves on to deliver Valentina, the kidnapped daughter of a Ukranian government official, from Marseilles to Odessa on the Black Sea. En route, he has to contend with thugs who want to intercept Valentina's safe delivery and not let his personal feelings get in the way of his dangerous objective.
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
In typical Fast and Furious fashion, during the first race, Brian forward shifts his Nissan Skyline 8-9 times. The Nissan Skyline only has 6 forward gears. The same thing happens with the Evo 7 and Eclipse Spider since they are both 5 speeds. See more »
In the 'turbo-charged prelude', we see the now-rogue Brian O'Connor on national news, including reported sightings of him. It seems odd that a crime lord of Verone's standing wouldn't have watched the news for the past few months, and simply recognize O'Connor when he sees him. 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!
