A Chinese Ghost Story II back to product details

Some romantic charm traded for more action, humor, and bigger SFX

Part of the romantic charm of the first film of the series has been traded for more action, more humor, and more and bigger special effects. The plot is quite convoluted, but mostly remains clear. Scene framing, lighting and music are still wonderfully atmospheric. Jacky Cheung's comedy skills add a lot, and Leslie Cheung, also well-versed in comic skills, plays the older and wiser Tsai, who still manages to remain clueless about so much and blunder into so much trouble, quite well. Joey Wong is wonderful. Michelle Reis, as the younger sister, is both poignant and funny. Waise Lee, usually better known for his smooth villains, does a fine job in the small part of Hu, the honorable captain guarding Lord Fu. Worth seeing.
