Here's a sequel that beats the original many times over.
There are more car crashes, more crazy stunts, more humorous accidents/events... more everything except for the love/drama, of which there is a little less than in the first. So, the plot in this movie: the Japanese minister is in France to check out a new armored car prototype (of course inspector Gilbert is the one showing the car, and constantly making a fool out of himself) and the minister gets kidnapped. Daniel somehow winds up in the middle of the mixture, along with his police buddy Emilian, and things get crazy.
Since the gang behind the kidnapping is Japanese there's a lot of flips, a lot of cartwheels, parkour-style building climbing flipping tripping running, good fights (always light, no blood, no brutality) and of course, as the name states, there's a lot of cars. More than in the last one. It is easy to assume the first movie was a hit since they 1) made a sequel and 2) included way more vehicles being creatively broken in this movie than in the prequel. If you liked the first one, you'll like this. Also, Daniel has installed some new creative adjustments to his Taxi (to make it fly), it turns out his girlfriend's dad is an army general, and in the end they all... oh wait, no spoilers. ;)
To sum it up, it's a great movie. Recommended!
