Vin Diesel opted to not appear in the sequel to the film the shot him to stardom in the first place, The Fast and the Furious. With the character of Dominic Toretto out of the picture, 2 Fast 2 Furious concentrates exclusively on the latest exploits of undercover agent Brian O'Connor, played by Paul Walker. In addition, with director Rob Cohen passing, producers have added a dash of credibility to the sequel by hiring John Singleton to helm. What does completely remain from the first film is the presence of fast-living underground street-racing gangs. Moving from Los Angeles to Miami, O'Connor is looking to redeem himself after the events of the first movie, so he again goes undercover to infiltrate another group of thuggish car enthusiasts. This time around he's enlisted the help of ex-con Roman Pierce (Tyrese) and fellow agent Monica Celemente (Eva Mendes) to bring down Carter Verone (Cole Hauser), an importer/exporter who heads up a massive drug trafficking operation. Heading up the supporting cast are hip-hop stars Ludacris and Fabolous.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
This supercharged sequel to the sleeper 2001 hit The Fast and the Furious lacks the imposing presence of Vin Diesel but in all other respects replicates the original. In other words, it has a surfeit of hard-driving action and more than a smidgeon of sensuality, with plot and characterization left by the roadside in a cloud of dust. Boyishly handsome Paul Walker reprises his role Brian O'Connor, who has been bounced from the L.A. police force for allowing Diesel's character to escape. Now frequenting Miami's street-racing scene, Brian is enlisted by federal agents to help bust wealthy importer Carter Verone (Cole Hauser), known to be a ruthless drug lord who needs top drivers to make deliveries. Working with his old pal Roman Pearce (Tyrese) and undercover DEA agent Monica Clemente (Eva Mendes), O'Conner worms his way into Verone's organization and daily risks exposure while gathering evidence. Under the muscular direction of John Singleton, 2 Fast 2 Furious reflects the influence of hip-hop culture much more than did the original, but that’s just window dressing for the action. The car chases are extended set pieces, staged and executed flamboyantly; Singleton's choice of camera angles brings the viewer right into the chase, and the editing of these dynamic sequences maintains a truly breathless pace. Walker is just serviceable in the leading role, but sidekick Tyrese shows a flair for scene stealing, and the sultry Mendes positively oozes sex appeal. 2 Fast 2 Furious is basically just a "popcorn movie," something you watch with your brain on autopilot -- and, thankfully, it doesn't aspire to be anything else.
All Movie Guide - Michael Hastings
With its Miami Beach setting, cadre of evil-druglord villains, and gravity-defying car chases, director John Singleton's follow-up to 2001's sleeper hit The Fast and the Furious isn't really trying to live up to its predecessor so much as it's attempting to be the big-screen equivalent of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. In that respect, it can only fail. The Playstation title boasts a better cast than the Vin Diesel-less 2 Fast 2 Furious, not to mention more-authentic production design, visually coherent stunts, and -- most importantly -- a keen awareness of its own clichés. But perhaps that's an unfair comparison. To its credit, 2 Fast substitutes an irrepressible, off-the-cuff turn from Tyrese for the MIA Diesel, and Singleton doesn't try to downplay the various ethnicities of his cast the way Rob Cohen did with the first film. Of course, this means that whitebread lead Paul Walker seems even squarer than he did last time around, and as a result, his buddy-buddy rapport with Tyrese comes off less like 48 Hours and more like a middling episode of Fox's Fastlane. (Accentuating the TV feel is Singleton's reliance on David Arnold's cheesy score.) Still, Singleton's able to score enough points with his kinetic-if-ridiculous street-racer opening to make one think that there still might be some life left in this franchise after all.
Village Voice
The vehicular action in 2 Fast is profoundly low-tech, and engagingly brawny. Alex Pappademas
San Francisco Chronicle
Nothing says summer film fun like explosions, guns and cartwheeling cars -- and that's all here. C.W. Nevius
