Storyline

Miami is being flooded with ecstasy that's coming from Cuba through drug lord Johnny Tapia. Detectives Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett are on the case, and are determined to bring the man to justice. Additional drama is provided by friction with the DEA, which counts Marcus' younger sister Sydney among its agents, and from Marcus possibly transferring out of the department, leaving Mike without his longtime partner.

Trivia

The shanty town chase scene is reminiscent of a very similar sequence in Jackie Chan's Police Story (1985). See more »

Goofs

When they arrive at the base at Guantanamo, Tapia tells the cops that the Americans can't help them because they are still on Cuban soil. The Marine tells them that they are standing in a minefield. At Guantanamo, the minefields are INSIDE the fence, on the American side - not on the Cuban side. Furthermore, there is no hard wall surrounding the U.S. Naval base at Guantanamo - it is all chain-link fence. See more »

Ten times the action, total hardcore
19 July 2003 | by pete-131See all my reviews

Well after that blunder of a motion picture called "Pearl Harbour" Micheal Bay bounces back with a better movie here. To his credit though in the few short films he has made so far none of them have bombed. This movie was 10x the action definately, and was actually way funnier than first one. Will Smith was definately more built, much tougher and more in charge, Martin Lawrence stole the show with his silly remarks every 5 seconds but I loved it.

The car chase scene on the highway was way better than the Matrix Reloaded's car chase scene, it puts that one to shame. But this highway chase scene will definately rank up there with T3's. Some parts in this movie were a bit overdone such as the morgue scene, won't get into it but I'll leave it at that, and the rats...that's it! :)

If you are looking for a solid type performance from Will Smith to be a good actor don't bother, this movie was all about pure action, and mindless fun, if that's what you want then go see it, if not don't waste your 2 hours and 40 minutes seeing it. Funny thing is, it didn't feel that long.

Can't wait to see this out on DVD in superbit. A great sequel.
