more a repeat than a sequel
10 November 2010 | by mjneu59See all my reviews

Only in Hong Kong would a martial arts-action-comedy mixing humor, horror, romance, and at least one song and dance number be given such a generic title. The sequel is no less noisy or frenetic then the original, and the bigger budget means better translated subtitles. But except for some cheesy, papier-mâché monsters and grubby special effects (an old man's eyes boiling out of his face, for example) the more polished production lacks the sloppy, innocent charm of Part One, and as in any sequel the excitement of discovery is diminished. On the other hand Part Two makes even less sense (if that's possible), despite telling essentially the same story: the headlong pace hides not only most of the plot holes, but much of the plot as well. A synopsis would be impossible; suffice to say there aren't too many movies able to claim the novelty of a scene set inside the digestive tract of a giant airborne centipede.
