Much of "The Inspector Wears Skirts II" feels like a retread of the first film, except that it's not as funny or as fresh: girlfights, harsh training, Stanley Fung trying to woo Sibelle Hu, Sandra Ng not finding a guy to woo her and constantly getting into trouble, a boys vs. girls martial arts tournament, etc. The action climax (in the last 10 minutes) does offer some spectacular fighting and stunts, but for most viewers it will probably be a case of "too little, too late". The absence of Ellen Chan is also unfortunate, but at least we have among the newcomers the busty Amy Yip, and a short-haired actress (sorry, I don't know her name, but she plays Joey) who pulls off a couple of impressive moves at the tournament. Anyway, it's not a painful film by any means, but you must be prepared for about 90% comedy - 10% action (while the original was about 70% - 30%) (**)
