dark sequel to Heroic Trio
15 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film continues Heroic Trio in a darker and much more hard edged tone.The viewer should really see Heroic Trio first to help get the story line.Michelle Yeoh and Anita Mui stand out in their roles and Maggie Cheung also turns in a fine performance.The opening scene with Michelle Yeoh driving a medical supply through a bleak environment is what sets the tone for the film-downbeat and serious,much more so than Heroic Trio.I think this film is underrated and certainly compares favorably with the Mad Max and Escape From.... films.The ending is very harsh and there is little or no comic relief in this film.I have seen some negative reviews of this film and I have to wonder if the writers saw this film as a stand alone-because if they did,the plot is not easy to comprehend.
