a Hong Kong Bodyguard caught up in a battle of loyalties
1 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I do not know why, but I expected more from this movie. This movie was completely and utterly forgettable...I wish I could be more specific, but other than the title there was noting to brag about in this movie. in fact it took me 3 tries to get through this movie I fell asleep twice

The story could have been great but between the acting and the action it was nothing to write home about. This movie almost makes me never want to see the first one again. I think my recommendation is for you to watch the first one twice and skip watching this one. Sorry folks I can only add that my Popcorn was yummy and my soda was ice cold and perfect.
