“2 Fast 2 Furious” is the sequel to “Fast and the Furious” and continues the adventures of Brian O’Connor play by Paul Walker. This time Tyrese Gibson plays his partner in crime. The do a good job of playing off each other, and yet some times it feels forced. Clearly not a good as the first but it does heighten what was started in the first.

It upped the cars and the racing. The cars are flashier. Enhancing the flashiness of real street racers. The racing and stunts have been taken to the next level. This time it is not just the drag race but also more of the rally style drag racing. “2 Fast 2 Furious” showed the evolution that continues into “Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift”.

It has movie previews for “Timecop: The Berlin Decision”, “Scarface: Anniversary Edition”, “Animal House: Double Secret Probation Edition” and “Bring It On Again”.

I give it 3/5 Gs.
