2 Fast 2 Furious: Directed by John Singleton. With Paul Walker, Tyrese Gibson, Eva Mendes, Cole Hauser. Former cop Brian O’Conner is called upon to bust a dangerous criminal and he recruits the help of a former childhood friend and street racer who has a chance to redeem himself.
I had forgotten that Eva Mendez was in the film, a shame that she gave up acting, but at least it was for a good reason! This movie is only slightly more over the top than the first one from the “going in reverse at 50mph to Brian straight up hitting the center pillar of a gate, one made of metal and sunk into concrete, which would have led to the character’s untimely demise IRL. This is the first time I’ve seen the film digitally through Itunes, but I remember having a DVD of it back when I was in college and replayed the “scramble” scene and remember where I was when I first watched it on DVD. The huge stunt of this film? Throwing a car onto a boat where the bad guy has a hostage and a shotgun.
