Felix Chong and Alan Mak reunite for another Hong Kong crime thriller, Overheard 2.
Although sporting a title that indicates a sequel, this film is just that in name only. The concept behind the story is in similar territory and the three leading cast members from the first installment are all here, but with completely different characters.
This picture goes through a lot with its nearly 2 hour run time and it kicks it off with an amusing 10 minute introduction involving a vehicle/surveillance chase. The story does slow down for a bit however, when the back stories of the three major characters are revealed.
One of the components of the story, which plays a major part in the film's final act deals with stocks. A thorough knowledge of this subject isn't required; however, this can make it or break it when it comes to the film's interest level.
Daniel Wu, Louis Koo, and Ching Wan Lau put together believable performances with their respective characters. Huang Yi and Michelle Ye have integral characters, but are quite limited in screen time.
Overheard 2 may not be a stunning masterpiece when it comes to Hong Kong crime thrillers, but as far as those go, it is a solid picture.
