2 FAST 2 FURIOUS (2003) 7MATE, 8.30PM, M, AC­TION

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

With Vin Diesel, su­per-cool star of the orig­i­nal, de­clin­ing the of­fer of an­other lap, the fol­low-up to the un­likely smash of 2001 is un­der­fu­elled. The barely ex­is­tent script picks up with for­mer LA cop Brian O’Con­ner (a re­turn­ing Paul Walker) mak­ing a liv­ing off Mi­ami’s il­le­gal street races. When ar­rested by lo­cal po­lice, Brian is of­fered the chance to avoid jail by go­ing un­der­cover to bust a drug lord (Cole Hauser). Di­rec­tor John Sin­gle­ton rev­els in his style-over-sub­stance ap­proach, keep­ing true to the pre­cepts of the orig­i­nal film – slick cars, babes in small shorts and lots of burn­ing rub­ber. ★★★
