Cold War 2 Reviews

  • Sep 14, 2019

    Boosted by strong performances from Tony Leung Ka-Fai and Aaron Kwok, Cold War II is a film whose quality might be up for debate, but does raise timely enough issues about safety and police forces in general, and does offer exciting enough sequences tied together by a strong enough story.

    This film looks great with solid performances and it was just smart enough plot wise to remain entertaining without unnecessary action sequences.

    Very strong casts, but the plot was too similar to that of its predecessor. The actions were great.

    Performance from the actor is superb and the plot is something you can appreciate albeit being predictable. It's moderately enjoyable but the pace is too sluggish non-fan of this genre might fall asleep

    How can Aaron Kwok be called an actor when he couldn't even enunciate his lines properly? Shows him up when paired against proper actors like Chow and Tony Leung. As to the movie itself, an OK beginning is let down by some blantantly implausible plotlines and an even more incredulous ending. At least Aaron Kwok's comedic attempt in speaking in English made me chuckle out loud.

    There are those that thinks that this is just another police story, but they fail to notice that this movie delves so much deeper into its politics. The casts are excellent, each playing to its strengths and brought intensity to each of their characters. That's only to be expected, with 3 Best Actors Award Winners (Tony Leung, Chow Yun-Fatt, and Aaron Kwok) and the supporting casts are some of the best too. The movie's pacing may be slow, but it alternate between adrenaline pushing scenes with great dialogue interaction. Conclusion? It's probably the best HK movie of 2016.

    Not as good as previous episode, the story line is too easy and plain, the plot surprises no one.

    It's Cold War between high ranking officers now. Thus less action, more talks, yet lacks of emotions. The action scenes still pretty awesome, but I expect explosive ending and...disappointed...

    Horrific, incoherent hack job of a film. Greedy producers bank on the finest actors in the region, and completely neglect the more important aspects of a film (eg. captivating story, interesting and diverse characters, logical process of events etc.). If anything, the music composer should have his license taken away and be sent to Bollywood. The abysmal, grotesque agglomeration of computer-generated french horns, generic clave rhythms, boring string ostinatos and a sound effect selection that is stubbornly stuck in the 80's. The amount of cliche and cringe in this film is overwhelming to the point that I wanted to disappear down my shirt collar. Famous actors mean f**kall when the writers have no idea what they're doing. The tragic part is, being a sequel to a much better film, this movie will likely do just as well, if not better, than its seasonal competitors, allowing producers to cry into more, thicker wads of $1000 banknotes as they scroll down the review section. AVOID at all costs
