Not as good as the first The Bullet Vanishes (2012)
6 April 2016 | by obertronSee all my reviews

It is nice to see Detective Song Donglu again, but the sequel feels forced and rushed.

There were issues raised with who the murder is, and the motive, but never resolved.

The factory owner's power feels too strong. His private force is able to do whatever it wants, kill whomever it wants.

The Detective is reunited with his love interest, but this too feels forced. It is an attempt to add more good looking young lady to the cast.

I would watch the first movie - The Bullet Vanishes (2012), and if you REALLY love that movie, watch this one.

The first one was very well done.
