Taxi: Former pizza delivery guy Daniel is speed crazy. Embarking on a new career as a taxi driver, his specially modified car is so fast even police radar can't spot him! When he unwittingly gives a high-speed ride to police officer Emilien, he is forced to accept a deal to keep his license: a stint as Emilien's police car driver. Now on the other side of the law, Daniel becomes the unlikely mastermind behind an investigation into a gang of German bank robbers. Aided by his girlfriend, Emilien's mother and a whole squad of pizza delivery boys Daniel and Emilien join forces with hilarious consequences to foil the robbers on foot, on scooters, and of course in Taxis.
Taxi 2: The Taxi gang are back in action again in this car chase packed sequel. This time round Daniel and Emilien get mixed up in the kidnapping of a visiting Japanese politician. Watch out for Daniel's amazing gadget laden taxi, which now has the ability to fly.

But, in the hands of Luc Besson, the story and the joke remains fresh throughout all three films in the series. Well, maybe it slows down a bit in the third when they get off the road and onto ski slopes. But Taxi 1 and 2 never tire (no pun intended).
Samy Naceri is the taxi driver with little respect for anything except speed and great driving. Frederic Diefenthal is delightful, and absolutely adorable, as his bumbling friend on the force who is serious about crime-fighting and winning his paramour, Petra. Wonderful characters abound in this fast-paced romp. Hollywood cannot make films with this much fun, style, or charm.
Think of these films as having elements of The Blues Brothers, the Lethal Weapon series (not 2, because that was rubbish) and all of the other cheesy car chase films you've seen.
But i already have them, so I need just need Taxi 3, which has been out on Amazon.fr for ages.
When are we gonna get it (Taxi 3), with English subtiles on Amazon.co.uk???
Excellent comedy.And watch out for a cameo from Sly Stallone in Taxi 3...
I have now found a way to switch the english subtitles to ON, on Taxi 2 and would like to withdraw my previous statement to the contrary.
I would also raise my rating to 5 stars if I knew how to?
Anyway, thanks again.

These two "Taxi" films are quite the worst French films that I have ever seen. Leave these sort of films to Hollywood as they do them far better ! Read morePublished on 26 Jan. 2006 by L. Davidson
