Awfully Lame, Melodramatic and Messy
5 January 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In a world devastated by nuclear war, the powerful Mr. Kim (Anthony Wong) owns the supply of water to a city. He plots a coup d' etat with the Colonel (Paul Chun) to overthrow The President (Shan Kwan) and they use Inspector Lau (Damian Lau) and the religious leader Chong Hon (Takeshi Kaneshiro) to set in motion an uprising.

Tung-Tung (Anita Mui) is imprisoned, but Ching-Ching (Michelle Yeoh) decides to protect The President and the Bounty Hunter Chat (Maggie Cheung) seeks potable water with her nephew Cindy and the agent Tak (Lau Ching Wen) that is loyal to the President.

"Jin doi hou haap cyun", a.k.a. "Executioners", is an awfully lame, melodramatic and messy sequel of "Heroic Trio" that I have not seen. The screenplay and situations are muddled and stupid, like for example Tung- Tung drinking rat blood in a moment and removing the door of her cell later. Another example, Inspector Lau brings his annoying daughter Cindy to the bus station to leave the child alone in a crowd. Or Tak, who does not swim, but dives in an unknown water spring. I could number lots of nonsense plot holes in the story.

The choreography is dreadful and the fights and action scenes are terribly edited. But maybe the worst is the unpleasant character Chat, who is the stereotype of a stupid woman. My vote is two.

Title (Brazil): "Heroic Trio 2"
