Young officer Emilien is determined to rescue the ambassador and officer Petra (his girlfriend), who was also kidnapped, and restore the honor of his department. Once again, speed demon taxi-driver Daniel (from the first Taxi movie) is called upon to save the day with his high-speed driving skills. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Émilien Coutant-Kerbalec: [subtitled version]
[Émilien has the escaping ninjas cornered in a dead end]
Émilien Coutant-Kerbalec: Ha-ha-ha-ha, oh yes, Marseille is complicated. Full of small streets. And you'll see that the cells aren't big either.

Fast, fun and fingerlicking cool !
12 November 2002 | by OmnipitusSee all my reviews

Taxi 2 is a classic example that it IS possible to make a great sequel ! It's got everything you'd expect from a future classic action-comedy ...and it's French !?! Well, it's no surprise to this critic. Author and producer Luc Besson hasn't let me down yet. The guy just doesn't make a bad movie ! Just go see it, you'll know what I'm talking about !
