Frank Martin puts the driving gloves on to deliver Valentina, the kidnapped daughter of a Ukrainian government official, from Marseilles to Odessa on the Black Sea. En route, he has to contend with thugs who want to intercept Valentina's safe delivery and not let his personal feelings get in the way of his dangerous objective.
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
One of the biggest plot points in the final act is how Verone tricked Fuentes into revealing she was a Customs agent by telling her money drop was at the airfield and not the pier; which she promptly told O'Conner about. However, until the henchman riding with O'Conner tells him drive to the pier, the actual money drop location was never mentioned in the film (not even when Fuentes comes to warn them that Verone will have the killed after making the delivery).

The main ending credits (cast and main crew) are accompanied by a cgi movie featuring the main cars from the film racing through a city at night. 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 »
2 Fast 2 Furious isn't quite as good as the first film but it's still a really good movie in its own right. The cast was great once again with Paul Walker returning to his role as Brian O'Connor and Tyrese Gibson and Eva Mendes adding new character dynamics. Tyrese in particular was great. If there's one thing the first film lacked it's that there wasn't much humor. It was a very serious film and while that's great, Tyrese's character, Roman Pearce, added some great laughs at some unexpected moments. The cinematic effects were much better in this film also. The only negatives were that some of the action sequences were a little overboard (Dukes of Hazard jump for example) and the dialogue had too much street car jargon to the extent that some of it felt forced. "That Yenko will snap a speedo in 5 seconds" is an example of the type of dialogue that doesn't actually feel genuine in its placement in the film. Nonetheless, a really good movie with solid acting and great action.
