2 Fast 2 Furious is a 2003 American Hollywood crime action film directed by John Singleton. It is the second installment of The Fast and the Furious franchise. Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) teams up with his ex-con friend Roman Pearce (Tyrese Gibson) and works with undercover U.S. Customs Service agent Monica Fuentes (Eva Mendes) to bring down Miami-based drug lord Carter Verone (Cole Hauser).
After allowing fugitive Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) to evade arrest, formerLAPD officer Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) finds himself on the run from theFBI and the LAPD for his actions. He flees Los Angeles to start a new life, traveling across the U.S. in a red Mitsubishi GTO. At each stop along the way he enters drag races, winning large amounts of money, and staying one step ahead of the FBI, who issue a country-wide manhunt against him. The police eventually locate Brian and repossess his car, forcing him to flee on foot. A young woman (Minka Kelly) picks him up hitchhiking, and drops him off at a local car lot, where he buys a 1999 Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 with his various winnings. After winning several more races, Brian decides to settle in Miami.
While in Miami, he meets Tej Parker (Ludacris), an ex-street racer who runs a top racing garage. Tej’s crew includes Jimmy (Jin Auyeung), a well-known car tuner, and Suki (Devon Aoki), another street racer, and lives in a small cot near Tej’s garage. After taking his Skyline to the streets of Miami and winning in races organized by Tej, he establishes himself as one of Miami’s top drivers, earning the nickname Bullitt (a reference to the well-known 1968Steve McQueen movie).
