When Chung's mother dies, his son is shipped off to an orphanage. The new chief of security, Zau (Tsui Kam-kong) refuses to give Chung a furlough to see his son. So

Audience Reviews for Tao fan (Prison on Fire II)

This one is weirder and doesn't find moments of calm to be precious like the first one. Police brutality starts out so bad and so public, it's amazing they didn't shut down the whole prison. (In fact, the last second-in-command got canned for it.) Prison violence is much more deadly; they finally have shivs. The comic relief has downgraded to clown acting in the mix; it's not relief from the suspense, most of which comes from Chow Yun Fat's just barely not getting caught 10,000 times during a chase. Bad guys are more caricatures than before, although the wormy slime of Skull comes across vividly. The end of the movie has a very dark surprise that winks at you while holding out the noose.

Not quite as good as the first, with much more humor, but still worthwhile.
