Here’s a movie filled with scenes of hot sun, hot babes and best of all, hot cars. The sequel to The Fast And The Furious boasts a mean collection of ferocious hot rods. Like the title suggests, this movie is fast: a blink of an eye could mean missing out on an entire race sequence. Credit should definitely be given where deserved, namely to the special effects department. The Floridian backdrops for this film are perfect, but even more so are the digitally crafted scenes complete with vivid colors and surreal graphics.
However, this movie is far from innovative. It’s a typical ‘badass’ movie. The cast is an odd selection of characters, starring Paul Walker and model/singer Tyrese, and rapper Ludacris and supermodel Devon Aoki with secondary roles. The plot lacks substance, as it appears to be an excuse to show off sweet muscle cars. For example, there is no apparent reason why this bunch of drag racers get caught up in a drug bust, other than to pump up the thrill factor of the movie. This an unrealistic story, right down to the 50+ grand dollar cars these characters just happen to own, is pure eye candy and should not be overly analyzed.
2 Fast 2 Furious is no better or worse a movie than The Fast And The Furious. Fans of the first installment will surely enjoy the second. This film will also appeal to anyone into fast cars and racing.
