Much better direction than the first. Funnier and more whimsical as well. Terrible CGI.

far from the first one.

This is basically a rehash of the first movie, without Andy Lau. That's not a good thing. Didn't like how they left a few plotlines unsolved, such as Ken's gambling debts and the small romance between Teresa and Ho.

The first one is too good, Ekin Cheng << Andy Lau

Pretty good, but just a tad short from expectations from the 1st one. For some reason it felt this one was filmed on a little lower budget, also the "coin guessing" scenes got abit repetitive, and Inspector Wong Fai was more stupid then funny. Good soundtrack from same composer as Shaolin Soccer, also great song by Ekin Cheng. All in all a strong sequel by Johnnie To.

Just as good as part 1. Ekin does a good job.

It's a bit disappointed. I was hoping it would top the first one. However, it is still a decent movie.

this film is trash.

Even the great Johnnie To misfires sometimes.

this one is better then the first, IMHO. The first movie was partially about revenge. While this one is actually a modern day 'Robin Hood' story. The only character that ticked me off was 'Lam Hay Lui''s character. I honestly don't see why it was necessary to have her breast rub Lau Ching Wan. Obviously he was not attracted to her. :p

Not to mention, I would call her yelling scenes to be another one of 'Scene of Over acting' along with Will Shatner.

I love several scenes, the Bike scene where someone mentioned here, the 'fake money' scene, flying out of a police station.. that's cool!

Much the lesser of the two films. Most of the same beats. But Ching Wan Lau continues to perform very well in his continued role.

Ekin Cheng isn't as good an actor as Andy Lau and for that, Out of Time 2 isn't as good a movie as 1.

the first one was better...

Not as good as the first! Still watchable!

Cleverly, smart and sophisticated. Clever how the bad guy is actually the good guy. Sequel that actually turned out to be good.... Verdict: Trust me even you guys appreciate it....

A big disgrace to the original. The theme remains the same but everything else is either partly or fully gone. The biggest problem is this movie has nothing that can hook you in. Its no wonder the 2nd movie came out so quickly but the 3rd has yet to be rumoured. This one really gives the series a bad rep.

the bike scene in the rain - classic.

Ekin Cheng spoils every movie he is in as usual. Can't act to save his life.

only ching wan returns as he's lured into game w/more gr- ueling intricate puzzles. when i first watched it i was thoro- ughly entertained! ekin doesn't possess andy's magnetism or smoothness but the puzzles are superior than the first!
