Chicago Sun-Times
A video game crossed with a buddy movie, a bad cop-good cop movie, a Miami druglord movie, a chase movie and a comedy. It doesn't have a brain in its head, but it's made with skill and style and, boy, is it fast and furious.

The result? Well, as expected, director John Singleton ("Boyz N the Hood") did not make a movie as good as "FF1." This is way better.
63
Regardless, it's sad that Singleton is taking Diesel's sloppy seconds.

New York Post
A lark for anyone who's willing to check their brains at the concession stand for 100 minutes.

Premiere
Singleton's film is, in fact, pretty enjoyable if you look at it as the B-movie it really ought to be, rather than the E-ticket major studio release it actually is.

Entertainment Weekly
2F2F, under the cut-to-the-chase direction of John Singleton, strips the package known as the Mindless Summer Movie down to its barest components of wheels, skin, and a pulsing soundtrack.
50
At least 2 Fast is self-aware enough to know that it's trash, which is worth half a bonus point. Lack of pretension helps the viewer get over the fact that this is just another retread.

Philadelphia Inquirer
Not to say that it isn't fun, only to say that it is more about sensation than sense.

Chicago Tribune
Looks sleek and moves efficiently, but there's nothing too distinctive under the hood.

New York Daily News
Lacks the charismatic presence of Vin Diesel, who has priced himself right out of the franchise. Without Diesel, there's not much gas, at least not from the nonvehicular elements.
10
Wall Street Journal
Certainly trashy, but, stripped of Mr. Diesel's services and directed by John Singleton, it's a no-go Yugo in muscle-car sheet metal.
