I was excited when I first picked this one up...However, I was soon falling asleep on this one. I'm a huge fan of action and gratuitous violence, but even that was boring too. The only thing good about this one was the girl and she was just pretty. The acting was overdone and bad...Hamish really!!! Where is John Wu or Woo when you need him...LOL

Also known as "The Black Sheep Affair", this movie sets the standard for over-dramatic. Everything in this movie is turned up to 11, the fight scenes are taken out of an old school wuxia film, (Siu-Ting Ching did the fight scenes) and everyone is pretty much shouting in every scene.

Take in a boring plot about an evil prime minister of a fictional European country, a villainous cult leader, poorly dubbed Russians, and you have a very boring action movie. It does have some interesting fight scenes, but the shootouts were totally over the top and terrible.

The main guy is as static as a character you can get, who has as much charisma as a stone statue. Qi Shu is here for a love interest, but the plot plods around and doesn't even surprise you one bit.

The saving grace is that final sword fight. Find it on youtube but don't watch the movie.

ANOTHER MELTDOWN (1998)

Also known as The Blacksheep Affair. A great OTT actioner with plenty of gunbattles, martial arts and explosions. The fight choreography is pretty good especially in the final showdown. Some of the dubbing though is hilarious for the Lavernia people. The attitude shown towards foreigners especially the Japanese is grim and annoying too. There are better examples of this type of HK action movie but if you've got time to spare then do check it out.

Allun Lam desperately tries to copy classic Hong Kong legends and the most typical stereotypes present in this kind of films. The result is an over-the-top moronic attempt at establishing his own style, thus causing boredom and that uncomfortable feeling of ridicule. Ashaming.

39/100

this movie starts similar to the first one, so in the beginning i expected it be just as idiotic as the first, but on the contrary this movie is better than the first one.The movie is a serious movie unlike the first one which was a spoof of classic american action films. The plot is similar to that of the original which was a terrorist situation but this was alot better done. The action choreography which was about the only thing i liked about the original, was about five times better in this. The acting wasn't bad i'm pretty sure it would have been alot better if not for the bad dubbing. Eventhough this isn't meant to be a spoof, at the end i was seeing a little homage to bruce lee. with that said that brings me to my point of contention with this film, in the end it seems as though the script wasn't finished yet so they improvised and the movie goes right into bulls**tville. i was going to give this movie four stars but the last seven minutes were total bull and that's why i would only recommend this movie as something to rent when you have nothing else to do.
