Critic Reviews for Shock Wave 2

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (2)

  • Despite a few modish touches, this feels fundamentally very old-school, and not necessarily in a good way, right down to the repeated shots of people running away from fireballs in the background.

    June 10, 2021 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • One plot line veers towards fantastical science fiction, but it's presented entirely seriously. It's an overwrought concept, conspicuously patched up by flashbacks and expositional dialogue.

  • [Herman] Yau does a good job maintaining his movie mostly at a brisk pace while Li Chung-Chi's action choreography features some well-staged foot-chase and shootout moments.

    July 6, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Herman Yau returns, and adds to the original's retro charm a convoluted allegory about protest, the police, and the former colony's relation with Mainland China.

    February 23, 2021 | Full Review…
  • There is so much here for genre fans to savour, it's easy to look beyond the overwrought story.

    February 18, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Sequel gigantism - a sickness seen in action movies based on hits - is at fault, but there are also threads that feel superfluous.
