Our review:
Parents say (12):
Kids say (31):

This movie has numbingly inane dialogue, and for a story about people who are in love with machinery, it's also absurdly low-tech. In one completely idiotic scene, the bad guy tortures a policeman with a metal bucket, a huge rat, and a torch. 2 Fast 2 Furious takes the least interesting character from the first film and puts him into a dumb undercover story that feels like a rejected script for Miami Vice. Talented writer-director John Singleton (Boyz N the Hood, Shaft) is really slumming here.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
