ldh's review

Although i couldn't get as emotionally involved as i was for SPL 1, and i think nothing can beat a grand finale fight between Sammo Hung and Donnie Yen, this sequel (in name only) has a lot going for it anyways. The cinematography and art direction are slick, the action is top notch and the performances are great. It's just that compared to SPL1 and its emotional depth, or The Raid 2 for its sheer ambition and bravura, the movie just doesn't measure up to those heights. It doesn't mean it's an enjoyable action romp.
