I could never imagine the movie industries in Hong Kong and China would have deteriorated so low and so unthinkably bad. I thought the first one (now we call it prequel?)in 2014 was bad enough, but guess what? The 2015 sequel just transcended it about 100% and became the champion of the worst of the worst! I don't even understand that we could call this film a comedy, because if you think what we saw in it got the ingredients of what we called 'sense of humor', then you are wrong. And if you think we saw here is Chinese humor or Hong Kong humor, then again, you are deadly wrong. We can't call the clowns in circus or rodeo comedians, because clowns just play dumb and stupid, do something so crazy that normal and rational people with reasoning abilities and logic won't do, what they do might make the under developed kids laugh. On the same premises, we cannot call the comedians who do the standup clowns, because there is and there are differences that can be easily distinguished.
What we got here in this stupid film are bunch of well-known Hong Kong actors, or shall we say, a bunch of has-been, who in the eyes of those producers and investors still could ensure some box office ticket selling potential. And then, the lousy script turned all these actors into clowns, they were cruelly abused by the script, its scenarios and the stupid plot (if there was any). The whole movie was just pathetic, so pathetic that I don't even know how to describe it, because what I saw was just over-the-top pretentiousness, contrivance, exaggeration, shallowness, and most of all, stupidity. What I hate and resent most of this film is how they wasted so much money to do it and purposefully made it so bad. If you think what they showed you in these two films are pure Hong Kong humor or even Chinese humor, you are pathetically wrong. What we saw here is the most obvious reason why and how good and normal movies from Hong Kong and China has become rare and rare, less and less. One of the reasons why the productions out of H.K. and China is so bad is because the totalitarian Chinese Communist government censors all the media products, the easiest way to pass the censorship is making stupid farces that won't touch any sensitive taboo of the reigning party and easily to get a release certificate and permit.
If you would like to keep your I.Q. and logic at a normal level, allowing them to develop in the right direction, don't waste your time watching it.
