The Japanese ambassaor is visiting Marseilles to view the city police's anti-gang tactics. During the visit, however, he is kidnapped by a group working for the Japanese yakuza. Young officer Emilien is determined to rescue the ambassador and officer Petra (his girlfriend), who was also kidnapped, and restore the honor of his department. Once again, speed demon taxi-driver Daniel (from the first Taxi movie) is called upon to save the day with his high-speed driving skills.

[subtitled version]

[Émilien has the escaping ninjas cornered in a dead end]

Ha-ha-ha-ha, oh yes, Marseille is complicated. Full of small streets. And you'll see that the cells aren't big either.
[points his gun at them]

Émilien Coutant-Kerbalec:
Line up, face down, hands on your back, I'm warning you, I'm the shooting champion of the department, stop doing the Mario! You speak French?
[ninjas suddenly form a circle leaning towards each other with their hands on each other's shoulder]

Émilien Coutant-Kerbalec:
Watch out! Warned you! Me do police brutality!
[ninjas scatter and climb up the wall, Émilien tries to follow but falls into a dumpster]

User Review

Great "Easy-to-watch" Movie!

Rating: 10/10

Sometimes you're in mood to see an "Easy-to-watch" movie, a movie that not
requires you to sit tight and be concentrated while watching. Taxi 2 is
certainly such a movie, and if you're a Car-fanatic, you're in for the
of your life! As it is not necessary to have seen the first film, I
recommend it, especially if you like this one!
