[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]
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]
Watch out! Warned you! Me do police brutality!

Great "Easy-to-watch" Movie!
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!
