These kinetic action sequences can't be done justice in a written review, but the good news is that they really do deliver the goods.

Cheang has an incredibly rare sense of scope and this callused fighting film feels far more expansive than most globetrotting Hollywood actioners.
April 9, 2017
Bone-crunching fight scenes, over-the-top melodrama and jaw-dropping coincidences: epic martial-arts thriller Kill Zone 2 boasts the lot.
May 25, 2016
Director Soi Cheang gives the audience plenty to look at in this violent ode to male bonding and family values.
May 13, 2016
Its very foundation is built on coincidences, which add excess density to an already dense narrative. But Cheang keeps the threads straight, which is as impressive a feat as any of his film's stunts.

If you like action films, you need to see "Kill Zone 2."
May 12, 2016
Mostly, just as "SPL" did with Yen, this sequel serves as an ideal showcase for talented martial artists.
May 12, 2016
If there's one rewarding thing about many Hong Kong action directors, it's that they rarely dawdle in getting to what fight fans have come for: bracing shootouts and high-impact fisticuffs and footwork.
May 12, 2016
Stylistically free but still cleanly delineated in character and crime-film structure, there comes a clear direction for the 21st-century action film.
May 12, 2016
Unlike certain recent Hong Kong movies that got bogged down in moralizing... Kill Zone 2 delivers the goods in this post-Raid environment.
May 12, 2016
What makes Kill Zone 2 remarkable is the head-pounding martial-arts action, a ballet of brutality that makes up in murderous choreography what it lacks in narrative cohesion. No one goes to a movie called Kill Zone 2 for plot anyway.
May 12, 2016
Cheang keeps the movie in a state of exaggerated emotion; it opens with the choral "Lacrimosa" from Mozart's Requiem and a slow-mo shot tinted arterial red, and rarely lets up from there.
May 12, 2016
Underneath a strange, body-horror plot lies a blistering Hong Kong action movie with the type of bone-crunching fight scenes that genre fans crave.
May 11, 2016
Kill Zone 2 is about half an hour too long, with a plot so convoluted it should come with a flow chart. But none of that matters, because once people start jumping across rooms to murder each other, it's so much damn fun.
May 11, 2016
Ultimately the story is secondary to the action, which rarely lets up and never lets viewers down.
May 11, 2016
A film brimming with audacious spectacle from start to finish.
May 11, 2016
Helmer Cheang and action director Li Chung Chi offer an impressive array of rock-'em-sock-'em setpieces, and the performances... are thoroughly attuned to the movie's overall tone of fever-pitched martial-arts noir melodrama.
May 11, 2016
Dizzily entertaining when the knives, bullets, and feet are flying, and sometimes painfully melodramatic during the interim exposition.
April 6, 2016
An exemplary showcase of gritty, no-holds-barred action filmmaking.
March 8, 2016
A colossal, bombastic and brilliantly crafted action thriller with a strong script and multifarious characters.
