2 Fast 2 Furious

3

Undeterred by the absence of the chrome-domed Vin Diesel, Fast And The Furious producer Neal Moritz simply teams returning surf dude Paul Walker with another muscular partner (Tyrese) for a second bout of rubber-squealing, gear-crunching mayhem.

Director John Singleton wisely recognises the cars are the true stars, trimming down character and plot to an absolute minimum lest they interfere with the frenetic scenes of street racing, tag-team pursuit and freeway carnage. You can see why - the movie gets stuck in neutral whenever the focus shifts to Walker and Tyrese's bickering relationship, though Cole Hauser's ruthless bad guy keeps the motor turning.
