Superior Prequel
27 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

Now, IA 1 achieved what other normal cat-and-mouse cop flick couldn't: being inventive and intelligent. And it made a lot of money, so the directors decide to make 2 more films. Instead of cashing in through bad sequel and then worse prequel (Think Ringu, Ring 2/Rasen and the really bad Ring O), it breaks the cliched road by doing the prequel first and then the sequel, except that the prequel isn't bad or worse. Which BTW will become the subject of this review. IA 2 is one of the best HK film (possibly the best) in the year of 2003. In fact, it is far more superior than first. Here's why: 1. Instead of the normal gangster film, IA 2 gives us a glimpse of what really happened that changes the two IA 1 character into what they become in the future. Some might argue that this is supposed to be the film of the two main characters in IA 1. However, we must also consider the two supporting characters on why they become enemies and why they are hot on each other's tail. 2. Its story really sums up well. BTW, the reason why the triad boss took the undercover cop under his hands is that he still didn't know about the undercover's background.

In conclusion, IA 2 is far more superior than IA 1. Let's wait for the third installment.
