My Rating

Movie Info

In this installment of a phenomenal saga of the super natural, four young people are caught in a tug-o-war of evil between an Imperial Wizard and a corrupt General. Outrageous special effects galore!

Audience Reviews for A Chinese Ghost Story II

The bumbling young scholar continues his adventures when he is mistaken for a respected philosopher whose disciples are trying to free one of their imprisoned brethren from the clutches of a demon impersonating a religious leader. More ridiculous coincidences, unlikely misunderstandings and mistaken identities are the excuse for people flying through the air in slow motion through pink and green backlit dry ice in this sequel to the popular fantasy from Tsui Hark. The action is the usual frenetic martial arts and pyrotechnics shot from odd angles and girls clothes accidentally fall off and boobs are accidentally grabbed in the usual Carry On Hong Kong style. The plot is the familiar Asian insanity with little to no structure to speak of; it's just a random sequence of events designed to introduce yet more eye boggling nonsense and the dialogue best not mentioned. And the monster effects are truly awful! Yet like a child's pantomime it's all done with such niave charm and enthusiasm it's difficult not to warm to it. I spent just as much time laughing at it as with it, but it's amusing enough to move it into the so bad it's (almost) good category.

I believe this part II trades much of the romantic charm of the first installment for more action and special effects.

Just as good, if not a bit funnier than the original.
