San Francisco Chronicle

By C.W. Nevius
The result? Well, as expected, director John Singleton ("Boyz N the Hood") did not make a movie as good as "FF1." This is way better.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
A video game crossed with a buddy movie, a bad cop-good cop movie, a Miami druglord movie, a chase movie and a comedy. It doesn't have a brain in its head, but it's made with skill and style and, boy, is it fast and furious.

Regardless, it's sad that Singleton is taking Diesel's sloppy seconds.

Premiere

By Glenn Kenny
Singleton’s film is, in fact, pretty enjoyable if you look at it as the B-movie it really ought to be, rather than the E-ticket major studio release it actually is.

A lark for anyone who's willing to check their brains at the concession stand for 100 minutes.

Entertainment Weekly

By Lisa Schwarzbaum
2F2F, under the cut-to-the-chase direction of John Singleton, strips the package known as the Mindless Summer Movie down to its barest components of wheels, skin, and a pulsing soundtrack.

Philadelphia Inquirer

Not to say that it isn't fun, only to say that it is more about sensation than sense.

USA Today

By Mike Clark
At least 2 Fast is self-aware enough to know that it's trash, which is worth half a bonus point. Lack of pretension helps the viewer get over the fact that this is just another retread.

New York Daily News

By Jami Bernard
Lacks the charismatic presence of Vin Diesel, who has priced himself right out of the franchise. Without Diesel, there's not much gas, at least not from the nonvehicular elements.

Wall Street Journal

By Joe Morgenstern
Certainly trashy, but, stripped of Mr. Diesel's services and directed by John Singleton, it's a no-go Yugo in muscle-car sheet metal.
