The electrical device used by the police throughout the film to disable the cars is non-existent in reality. It was just made up by the creators of the film to add more excitement. See more »

In order to get a 12 rating in the UK, the BBFC cut stomps, kicks and spitting on a prone man, omitting 11 seconds. Although the UK DVD is rated 15, the cuts still remain. The 15 rating for the DVD is because of the special features, the main film is still rated 12. The UK Blu-ray is uncut. See more »
The absence of Vin Diesel is felt greatly in this film, as he and Paul Walker were a great team in the original film. I wasn't sure if I would like this film the first time I saw it, but Paul Walker was still great, as was Tyrese Gibson, playing Roman.
After this film, no one was certain about the future of the Fast franchise, not even Vin Diesel. There is a great storyline from this film that gives background on Brian O'Connor and Roman Pearce for future installments. This all culminates in the 2009 film, Fast & Furious.
I have to say, I really liked the jump onto Carter Verone's (Cole Hauser) yacht, that was really spectacular. I wonder how many takes it took to get that right. And the ejection seats in the car! Ouch! Overall, 2 Fast was not the best of the series, but it was really good nonetheless.
