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
The film has an almost similar plot to that of Nemesis (1992): In that film, Alex Rain (Olivier Gruner) a former undercover Los Angeles policeman turned data smuggler is kidnapped and forced to work with the LAPD again and do one last assignment and is sent undercover to infiltrate a rebel group which in return he'll retire for good with lots of money. In this film, Brian O'Connor (Paul Walker) a former undercover Los Angeles cop turned street racer is arrested and forced to work again with Agent Bilkins (Thom Barry) and go undercover to bring down drug lord Carter Verone (Cole Hauser) which in return his criminal record will be erased.

When Brian and Rome are sitting at the table with Carter after Brian and Rome win the tryout race Carter opens the package Brian and Rome retrieved from the impound lot. It is a cigar and he cuts and lights it. The next shot shows the cigar with a large amount of ash already built up, more than could have been smoked that fast. See more »

The cars, the stunts and the eye candy (Eva Mendes) are better than the first. But unlike the first, 2 Fast 2 Furious still boasts a lacklustre plot. Nevertheless, it's a great "bro" movie for the guys. The partnership between Roman Pierce (Tyrese Gibson) and Brian O'Connor (Paul Walker) is amusing and works well as they team up and do next to impossible driving stunts with each other. The slight romance between Monica Fuentes (Eva Mendes) and Brian O'Connor is predictable, but it's not to the same extent as the first one - just a bit of flirtation but not to the extent of a full fledged relationship. The Miami backdrop adds to the "upgrade" feel of the second movie in the Fast & Furious franchise. Flashy and full of action is 2 Fast, 2 Furious.
