Digital Cover: The Fast Cast of ‘Furious 7′ Speeds Back
- Car, Meet Yacht – 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)
Okay, so 2 Fast 2 Furious isn’t a total wash. In addition to the aforementioned opening sequence, this Diesel-less sequel should be commended for introducing one of the Fast & Furious franchise’s most important components: its humor, supplied here by perennial one-liner king Roman Pearce (Tyrese Gibson). This scene, in which Brian and Roman have to drive their car straight onto a yacht in order to save Brian’s girl, Monica (played by Eva Mendes), exemplifies the franchise’s uncanny ability to combine high-flying action with perfectly timed comic relief. It’s the blueprint for all of the future playful banter later shared between Tyrese and Ludacris.
