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.
Make sure to see the Fong Sai Yuk movies uncut and not dubbed.
