A slight - repeat, slight - improvement over the first movie
4 February 2010 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

"Black Cobra 2" is one of those rarities - a sequel that is better than the original. Actually, considering how awful the first movie was in just about every aspect, it wouldn't take anyone much effort to crank out a better movie. This time, Chicago cop Malone (actually, he was a NEW YORK cop in the first movie!) is sent to Manila, and the fact that making movies there is pretty cheap probably explains the improvement. The cinematography is more colorful, the lighting is better, the indoor shooting locations look less impoverished, and there are some colorful outdoor locations. The action scenes are also an improvement, though some of this comes from the unintentionally hilarity of the martial arts sequences. However, the movie still suffers from the fact that it's mostly DULL. It's a slow-moving story, with the investigation going on forever and taking half an hour from the opening action scene to get to the next action scene. And while they got more out of their dollar for production values, the movie still suffers from cheapness, like the fact the hostages at the climatic scene are never seen. Anyway, I'll see you again when I review part 3...
