Storyline

Genetic modification means Black Mask has superhuman fighting and healing powers. He is searching the world for top geneticists who might be able to reverse his mutation, which has stolen his ability to feel emotion. His maker, whom he's running from has an amateur rival in this sequel though. Someone is hybridizing the DNA of top pro-wrestlers with that of animals, making them stronger and deadlier. But the process is turning the wrestlers (Iguana, Chameleon (Traci Lords), Snake, Wolf, and Claw) slowly more into animal killers, than human-beings. Black Mask tries to help the wrestlers but their boss has plans for BM himself. Written by kwedgwood@hotmail.com

Entertaining - if you watch it in the right frame of mind
4 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

I tried to watch the first "Black Mask" a few months ago, but it was the dubbed version and I only lasted about 10 minutes. This sequel, however, was actually shot in English, so no problems there. Visually intricate and full of interesting and cool computer graphics (loved that extending fist!), it is one of the craziest and most action-packed flicks I've ever seen. Although most of the fighting involves heavy wirework and computer effects, it is easy to accept it because the movie never hides its comic-book roots. And in true comic-book tradition, the villains are more colorful and entertaining than the hero (especially Lang and Thorn). Amid all this action, Tsui Hark finds room for small comic asides about "Batman" and pro wrestling. And Yuen Woo Ping hasn't lost his touch: he makes Traci Lords look like just about the best female wrestler you'll ever see, even BEFORE she is transformed into a semi-invisible chameleon. In short, if you like one or more of the following things - "Batman", "Mortal Kombat", "Power Rangers", wrestling, Yuen Woo Ping and general craziness - you'll probably like the film. (***)
