2 Fast 2 Furious is a movie released in the US on June 6, 2003. It is the sequel of The Fast and the Furious.
The film was directed by John Singleton, while the soundtrack was composed by David Arnold. The producers were Lee R. Mayes and Neal H. Moritz.
Picking up from where The Fast and the Furious left off, the story begins in Miami, where O’Connor has moved to avoid legal repercussions after letting a criminal get away. His actions are grounds for dismissal, and O’Connor is stripped of his badge.
O’Connor is not happy about being kicked off the force. He lives alone, has few friends and keeps to himself. It is not clear whether O’Connor has a “real” job, but it is obvious that he lives for street racing’s adrenaline rush.
The movie opens with a treacherous race - involving a raised drawbridge - that O’Connor easily wins. Needless to say, it isn’t long before police arrive: After all, street racing is illegal. O’Connor is arrested, but when the cops bring him in to the station they offer him a deal: Criminal charges will be erased if O’Connor accepts an undercover assignment to bring down drug lord Carter Verone (Cole Hauser) and expose his money-laundering cartel.
O’Connor agrees, and he convinces his childhood friend and racing buddy Roman Pearce (Tyrese Gibson), an ex-con, to help him. Joined by undercover customs agent Monica Fuentes (Eva Mendes), the three create a plan to take down Verone.
Along the way, the plot takes some exciting twist and turns. For example, throughout the movie it is hard to tell to whom Agent Fuentes is loyal: Verone or Pearce and O’Connor.
