I am an avid cinephile of HK cinema. Since the early 90s, Stephen Chow has become HK's greatest asset, rising above genre limits in his latest mature directorial, writing, and acting efforts. Although I have watched many of his films, I only consciously realized recently how much I enjoy his work. Fist of Fury 1991 Part 2 will always be near the top of my list of favorite Chow films including Gong Fu (2004), Royal Tramp 2 (1992), Royal Tramp (1992), and King of Beggars (1992).
The greatest quality of Chow's early '90s films is raw slapstick comedy; to me Fist of Fury 1991 Part 2 embodies this quality more so than any other film I have seen from Chow. The comedy is almost nonstop, and I was laughing in tears nearly the entire time. Some of my favorite scenes include Kenny Bee trying to impress Josephine Siao with his hunk personality, Chow trying to shoot Yueh Wah with his "gun," Nat Chan mistaking Chow for the girl of his dreams, and Chow displaying his "accumulated skills over the years" to Josephine Siao.
This film doesn't seem to get a lot of attention, but it is one of my favorites from Stephen Chow. Prior knowledge of part 1 will enhance your familiarity with some of the characters.
