Let's talk. Will you release my pupil first?
Leung, are you all right?
Wong Shun Leung:
Why did you injure him?
Wong Shun Leung:
He wanted to fight, but wasn't as good as me. I couldn't really help it, could I?
What did you say? I'm not as good as you?
Take it easy! You're both young men. Injuries are inevitable in friendly fights. I'll visit your master and explain to him. May I know who your master is?
Doesn't matter. He's better than you anyway. By the way, did you bring the ransom?

After I wrote my comment on Ip Man part I, I said I have not seen such action movie since Bruce Lee. Well, here is another movie of the same kind. No mistake. Afer we saw all the Stallones, Van Dammes and Schwarzeneggers we finally got one more film milestone. I really cannot find anything bad about this film. Except maybe ... the first part develops the characters more carefully, so if you have not seen the first sequel you might not recognize some fun in numb 2 ... But, everything else is a work of a masterpiece!! Acting, costumes, development of the action plot and emotional plot as well ... Just keep on working, seriously - I have not seen such a good action movie serial made anywhere else in the world for a very long time, especially not in Hollywood. After Kurosawa and Bruce Lee, this is the name you suppose to remember!!!
