Take the three best things about the original "Mad Mission" / "Aces Go Places" (the catchy music score, the breathtaking, risky stunts, and Sylvia Chang's magnificent legs), add some innovative car chases (including one where a car gets literally sliced in half but keeps on running), some cool transformer robot battles, a brief dose of martial arts (including two female fighters who appear out of nowhere and disappear into the same place), a character called "Filthy Harry" played by an actor who does a very funny and very accurate Clint Eastwood imitation ("Have I seen you before?"...."Yeah, in HELL!"), and a recurring cameo by Tsui Hark as a mental hospital escapee, and you get "Mad Mission 2". This movie plays as if it was made by 10-year-old boys: the story is sloppy and empty of content (in fact, neither the opening credits nor IMDb even list a screenwriter!), but you can't deny the wild, wacky imagination on display.
