Movie Info

Following closely on the heels of the original Fong Sai Yuk, a martial arts action-comedy featuring the acrobatic skills of martial arts star Jet Li, Fong Sai Yuk 2 offers a similar mixture of adventure, action, and farce. The previous film had concluded with Fong Sai Yuk working with the secret Red Lotus Society to defeat an evil villain; now, Sai Yuk is undergoing his official initiation into the society. Despite being the society's newest member, he is asked to participate in an important mission: helping to retrieve a sacred box containing a valuable secret. The initial attempt fails, however, and Sai Yuk is the only one to survive. The society's leaders accuse him of cowardice and incompetence, but, thanks to the intervention of Sai Yuk's equally tough mother, he is given a chance to redeem himself. This time, however, he is to woo the daughter of the powerful governor who holds the box -- an idea which obviously will not please his fiancee Ting Ting. While the farcical elements are not quite as well-handled as in its predecessor, Fong Sai Yuk 2 does match the original by delivering a number of spectacularly choreographed fighting sequences. ~ Judd Blaise, Rovi

... there is an inexplicable disjointedness to it that the first film never seemed to have.

Audience Reviews for Fong Shi Yu II: Wan fu mo di (The Legend 2)(The Legend II)

Fong Sai Yuk (Jet Li) is being initiated into the Red Lotus Society as this movie begins, but sinister forces within this brotherhood are attempting to use him in a bid to usurp power. The Legend Of Fong Sai Yuk was praised for its over-the-top slapstick, funny characters, Corey Yuen's brisk pacing, and lots of creative fight scenes; The Legend Of Fong Sai Yuk II dishes out more of the same. There are many wuxia films that are better than this one, but even diehard fans of kung-fu movies will find plenty of exciting visual spectacle that's unique to this film and this film alone.

Most of the principle players from the first film return in this disappointing sequel rushed into production in an attempt to hit pay dirt twice in one year. While "Fong Sai Yuk II" contains few if any real damning flaws (aside from Jet Li's newly acquired feminine scream) everything you see and hear really amounts to nothing more than a retread of circumstances already covered by its far superior predecessor.
