I know, I know. Rosamond Kwan is as useless as **** zits. She is like a loud-mouth parrot on crack. And believe me, nothing was more enjoyable when Donnie finally said to her in his mind (and I'm assuming this) "*****, you annoyed me for the last time," and punched her in the face. But trust me, her uselessness and exasperating nature wasn't even close to ruining what I think was great action movie.
Tiger Cage 2 is about Donnie and Rosamond on the run from the cops for a murder they didn't commit (but that part of the story is not really focused) and also trying to recover a **** load of money and dealing with some corrupt guy who was the mastermind behind the murder. What will they do? Ooga Booga!
The story does work for what it is even though it is unfocused at times and some of the aspects of the story are not conclusive. The acting is passable except Rosamond who is nothing more than eye-candy who acts as a horrid comic relief. But the action is where this movie really shines. It is practically non-stop and all of it was fantastic. Most of the action is martial arts fighting and does have some gun fighting and the choreography is wonderful. BUT (!!!!) what is up with that sword fighting scene? That was my main curiosity for this movie and I wasn't disappointed. In fact I liked it a lot but it is a little over-hyped. I would put it in maybe top 100 best fight scenes ever but I seen better. Just an opinion. Sor-ry!
In conclusion: Indeed, a wonderful HK action film despite being inconsistent in tone with the story, the always unwanted comedy and that irritant Rosamond Kwan.
