Quick Take: 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)


By far the least-liked of the F/F franchise (lowest ratings on IMDb, Metacritic)- no, I take that back. I can’t say “by far”, because a lot of people don’t like the next movie either. But 2 Fast 2 Furious does seem for the most part to be generally considered the worst movie. I’d love to be a contrarian and tell you how underrated this movie is, but it’s terrible. It’s not that it’s 2 unbelievable, because the first one wasn’t believable either. It’s not that the actors are 2 bad, because they’re just as fun as the first one; you miss Vin Diesel, but Paul Walker is back, and Tyrese and Eva Mendes are welcome additions. It’s not that the action is 2 boring, because the races are just as exciting as the first one’s. It really comes down to the plot being 2 stupid, and it’s as simple as that.

Quicker take: 2 Fast 2 Furious as a title is stupid, and so is its drug-busted plot.
