I watched this movie at my cousins house a couple years ago. He has a projection screen, so it actually looks like you're watching it at the movies. As one reviewer noted, Donnie Yen is trying to act like Bruce Lee in this movie, instead of the actual character. He tries to duplicate Bruce Lee style of fighting, but it doesn't come off very well. Donnie did the choreograph in this film and it's pretty bad. The fight scenes weren't very exciting and the camera was way to close at times. I'm a little shocked, since Donnie is usually excellent at choreographing fights. There were a lot of boring drawn out scenes that would put you to sleep.
The story doesn't even follow the original Fist of Fury. In some areas it does, but then it drifts away from it. I know this is suppose to be a sequel, but the script isn't written that way. I really didn't like much about this film at all. It was below average for me. I picked up Fist of the Red Dragon (1993), one of Donnie Yen's earlier films and it blows this movie away. The fights were decent and the story pretty interesting. It's out on DVD now, so I suggest people check that movie out instead. I gave Fist of Fury: The Sequel 5 out of 10. Rent it if you must, but be warned that it's not very good. If you want to see some better movies with Donnie Yen in it, get Once Upon a Time in China 2, Iron Monkey, Hero or Wing Chun.
