Justin Lin (Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift) returns to direct this action packed sequel with the all original cast. This time around Agent Brian O’Conner, now working with the FBI, is trying to bring down a drug lord who hires street racers to help in his operations. Toretto finds himself back in town after a suspicious murder which eventually brings the two rivals back together again. In my opinion the best of the franchise.
First off you’d do well to leave logic at the door. Fast & Furious is an action packed no brainer. You come in expecting Gone With the Wind and your going to do yourself a disservice. All the problems that I had with the first film are fixed here. Paul Walker and Vin Diesel’s speaking parts are narrowed down to make more room for the action, there are more cars, and less of the franchise trying to take itself seriously. After all wasn't the franchise starter just a film formulated after the 1991 Keanu Reeves/Patrick Swayze film Point Break? Regardless the film has something for everyone; romance, action, violence, humor. No doubt the film will make bank and reenergize the stumbling franchise back from obscurity. A must see. Enjoy.
