The Storm Warriors (2009)
Reviewed by: MrBooth on 2010-10-26
Summary: Meh
After over a decade it was a surprise to see a sequel coming out to one of my favourite HK films, The Storm Riders, featuring the 2 original leads... both of whom have thrown off their pretty boy image and grown into quite respected actors in the interim. You wouldn't know that from The Storm Warriors though, since it is shallower than the merest film of water, with a plot that simply leaves you wondering why you should care. Basically it's an exercise in special effects, and it does show the tremendous advancement in local CGI talent that has taken place since the original was released - the quality is fantastic, and the film is often beautiful. But rarely, if ever, interesting - which is a shame.
Reviewer Score: 3
