Iron Monkey 2 (1996)

Summary: Cheesy
You know a bad movie when you see one. The failure of "Iron Monkey 2" is interesting though. It's not so much that Yuen Wo Ping couldn't choreograph - but rather, it just has the worst camera shots ever: even worse than that of "Legend of the Wolf." In fact, the actors are fully capable action performers - some of the most incredible I've ever seen. Unfortunately their talent is shadowed by the awkward camera angles that failed to capture the goods.

Nevertheless, the plot is one of doom. It simply wanders all over the place and never focuses anywhere in particular, which only confuses the daylight out of us. It's a shame, really, because with more competent direction, the cast could have delivered an action masterpiece. The fight scenes are still not too bad, though.
