Brian O'Connor (Paul Walker) was kicked off the force for his little stunt in the Fast and the Furious and has been on the run ever since. He fled all the way to Florida, where he became friends with Tej (Ludacris), the man who knew where all the action was. Before too long, Brian couldn't even find anyone who would race against him and word was out. The cops grabbed Brian and made him an offer - help them with a case or go to jail. The cops have been trying to nab the premier drug dealer in the area, Carter Verone (Cole Hauser), for some time, but haven't been able to make anything stick. Conveniently, Mr. Verone is looking for some drivers to make drops for him and that is where Brian comes in. Brian takes the deal, but on one condition - this his buddy, Roman Pierce (Tyrese), gets a piece too. Before they know it, Brian and Roman are in way over their heads as they combat fellow street racers, sexy undercover cops, an insane boss who is not above torture and the fast, furious life in Miami.
I really liked this film and would say that, in some ways, it was better than the first. For one thing, this one seemed to actually have a plot, which was nice, even though it was a really simple one. For another, the street racing was awesome. The first race that the movie opens up with is one of the best scenes of the whole movie, but all of the racing sequences are great. The cars are hot and so are the effects and you feel like you are really gaining speed while you are watching the film. The special features on the DVD are a little skimpy, but there is a sequence that is worth watching about how Brian made it from California to Florida. Well worth your time to check out!
