Arrived on time. Excellent film. Very entertaining. A few aspects are dated but still watch with lots of pleasure and very funny. A great buy you won't regret it.

Brilliant Movie, arrived right on time. If the director is Luc Besson then the movie is a 100% win! :D

Taxi 2 roars onto your screen from the starting line with more of the same high speed racing mixed with it's quick witted nature. For a sequel, it shows that it can stand alone as it's own film yet keep in lane with the original. Being a French film, it offers subtitles for the non-french speaker, which are clear and bold, which is a refreshing change for a subtitles film. The stunts are impressive, with the classic 'taxi' style pile-ups you've been longing to see. A complete non-stop, tongue in cheek, blast of a film. Recommended!

We catch up with megaspeed taxi driver Daniel once again in Luc Besson's stunning sequel to the 1998 original Taxi.
The story this time follows Daniel, his soon to be father in law (Who, by the way, happens to be a senile old general!) and his bumbling cop friend Emilien on a mission to stop a Nija gang from terrorising the streets of Marseille. Fully packed with high speed car chases, stunning Ninja sequences and sharp witted humour, this film far excels the original. The adrenaline pumped Daniel is once again played with precision by Samy Naceri, Whilst the ever sexy Marion Cotillard plays the long waiting girlfriend Lily. Look out for cameos by Jaques Chirac and Lionel Jospin.
One more thing for you die hard fans, Mr Besson's Taxi 3 is out in French cinemas later this year...

Forget what you think you know about cliched French cinema. Do not be mistaken. This film is neither arty, nor sophisticated, nor is it in black and white.
Taxi 2 (like Taxi 1) is effortless viewing. Above all it is comedy, interspersed with great car chases. It is the funnier and more excillarating European cousin of the Fast and the Furious. The film neither takes itself too seriously, nor does it waste time with digitally enhanced this and that. The chases are just excellent, and really look like they have sent a stunt driver out into the rush hour traffic to do his worst (or best)to frighten us.
The humour is largely slapstick and there are plenty of non-politically correct stereotypes (policemen, japanese, german & french alike). It is an odd association but if like me you grew up with TV characters from BBC's Allo Allo, or Inspector Clouseau (pink panther films)and enjoyed car films like Italian Job (original),Cannonball Run and Monte Carlo Rally, etc you should like this.
The plot is simple. After dinner at the future 'in-laws', Daniel (a taxi driver) just pops out to give his girlfirend's father (a General) a lift to the airport where the Japanese ambassador is arriving to sign a military contract. When the ambassador is kidnapped, Daniel feels obliged to come to the aid of the embarrased French dignitaries. With the police and army in tow, Daniel attempts to get the ambassador back as quick as possible. All the while, he is trying to get home to his frustrated girlfriend who is waiting for him with the promise of 'dessert'.
None of the jokes or action have been spoilt in this review. Go see it!

I think this sequel is better than the original, it is more funny, and has more action. The car chase in crowded Paris towards the end is not to be missed. Daniel has also added some interesting features to his taxi, which I wont say. The action scenes include almost no special effects, and they certainly don't make them like this anymore. overall its just very entertaining.
Of course to fully appreciate it you should first see Taxi 1, which is also very good. The dvd does allow you to switch the french subtiles off, unlike the Taxi 1 dvd, which i appreciate. Also included is 'the making of taxi 2', the trailer, and some filmographies.

There are no promises in this film except one: that it's guaranteed to make you smile! Non politically correct sentences are translated (very well in fact) in abundance and this offers a fresher film than the holloywood movie industry churns out. It's packed with action and fast paced, and there is even a plot hidden under it all. Don't buy this if you hate daft films though.
Light hearted and funny, this is definitely worth buying on dvd because it's one of the few films that you'll continue to put on every few months.

This film is definitely for Taxi fans. The first film was a romp through a bunch of characters that could have you on the edge of your seat in fits of laughter. Taxi 2 brings most of these back together for one more trip through the streets of Paris.

A japanese high-flier is kidnapped, along come the taxi driver, his hapless cop friend, and his troop of keystone french cops. Result - hilarious sketches.

Definitely worth watching - though I'd stop here and not go on to Taxi 3.

The first time I saw this film was in my A-Level French class, normally the people in my class dont care for watching French orientated films, but this was completely different, they sat and watched their eyes glued to the car chases through famous towns in France. I thoroughly enjoyed this film, and would definatley recommend it if you like fast cars, and even if you dont like the French.
