The predestination of (all) sequel(s).

A serviceable sequel that is inferior than the first. Chow Yun-Fat is back as Ching, but now he's the main character now that his friend is gone. The violence is racked up, and a little on the over the top side. Chow Yun-Fat is good, but the movie only succeeds when the son has scenes with him or the prison escape scenes.

Quite the same as the first episode, with much more hope, but much more creamy.

This one is weirder and doesn't find moments of calm to be precious like the first one. Police brutality starts out so bad and so public, it's amazing they didn't shut down the whole prison. (In fact, the last second-in-command got canned for it.) Prison violence is much more deadly; they finally have shivs. The comic relief has downgraded to clown acting in the mix; it's not relief from the suspense, most of which comes from Chow Yun Fat's just barely not getting caught 10,000 times during a chase. Bad guys are more caricatures than before, although the wormy slime of Skull comes across vividly. The end of the movie has a very dark surprise that winks at you while holding out the noose.

See Prison on Fire 1 first, the second is just as good. Chow Yun Fat is a legend. Its all in house jail stuff, totally watchable with great characters.
