Director Gérard Krawczyk

Why change a winning formula? On the surface Taxi 2 appears to have been re-purposed from the original high-octane movie, so that a guaranteed hit is assured. There are certainly enough stunts, punches and one-liners sprinkled here and there for good measure. It isn't, however, a simple sequel. True, it gets as close to a carbon copy of the original as possible, but the pace is oh so much faster. Set in Paris on Bastille Day the leading characters are chased by Ninjas, which allows the inclusion of karate action and Jackie-Chan-style moves into the pace of the film.

On the DVD: The disc boasts superb DTS sound, transforming your living room into a Peugeot dealer's idea of heaven, as well as a formidable Dolby Digital 5.1 sound that's as sleek as a freshly polished 406. The image is clean and perfectly transferred. Regrettably there is a distinct lack of bonus features; only a "Making of" featurette, basic filmographies, interviews and two hidden Easter eggs are included here.--Alex Fréau, Amazon.fr
