The Sting II (1993) was another one of the many films Wong Jing worked on during the early to mid 90's. This is just as bizarre, funny and action packed as his other films. Instead of parodying Hollywood productions, Wong Jing goes after his Hong Kong colleages in this one. No one is safe in this one! Andy Lau and Christy Chung co-star as a pair of swindlers. During one of their scams they happen to cheat the wrong man. Very upset he goes after Andy Lau and forces him to participate in a bizarre scheme. Lau has to go inside a prison and find a convict who holds the key to getting this nasty individual off his back. To complicate things further, Lau makes enemies with Tony Leung Ka-Fai, a wannbe playboy/gambler who eventually has to join forces to finish his "job". Extremely weird and funny. The rest of the movie is so out there it has to be seen to be believed.
Classic Wong Jing!
For some reason this movies is called The Sting II on the V.C.D. Wong Jing also continues his obession with the video game "Streetfighter II".
