Summary: a weak echo of the first Fist of Fury 1991

I REALLY like Fist of Fury 1991, i've watched it dozens of times over the years. I knew about this sequel so I've been wanting to watch it for a long time. Now that I finally have, I'm pretty disappointed. Lots of these sequels 'ruin' the original (ie Fight Back to School II), this one isn't that much better, but at least in this case he's jeopardizing his relationship with Cheung Man with a twin Cheung Man.

If you are a fan of the first one, its good to see Chow, Kenny Bee and Cheung Man together again in their FoF characters, but as a stand alone movie, its not that great. The highlight for most people will be Cheung Man's wet t-shirt scene. :-P

I had so many laughs seeing it 10 years ago, and it was the funniest thing back then. The man-woman bathtub mix-up and Josephine Siao as the face-covered kung fu master have been forever clawed into my memory.

Summary: Average

This was better than the original I would say for sure, the jokes were funny this time, and although the story was poor, I still enjoyed it. Big improvement since the one before it.

Summary: Stephen Chow's best

I hired this one by accident. I'm not particularly a fan of the foul-mouthed Chow, but this film forced me to take him more seriously (as a comedian, of course).

Chow's character is far more human and sympathetic than in many other of his films, and he and the great Jo Siao bounce off each other wonderfully. Highly recommended.

Previously published:
Entertaining all the way, a bit gross in places, hilarious in others (the shower scene really cracked me up !). Josephine Siao is in top form as kung fu mistress trying to hide her skills. Some brilliant kung-fu scenes, especially Jo Siao vs Yuen Wah. And Cheung Man playing two roles. This film is as good as the similarly-constructed God_Of_Gamblers_III_(Back In Shanghai) should have been. Probably the best Stephen Chow film I've seen so far, or perhaps I'm simply adjusting to his style.
