Undercover cop Kit (Wu Jing) becomes a junkie in order to catch Mr Hung (Louis Koo), the mastermind behind a crime syndicate. When the operation goes sour and Kit blows his cover, his supervisor and uncle Wah (Simon Yam) decides to terminate the operation. When Kit disappears without a trace, Wah defies the order from his commanding officer and tracks Kit to a prison in Thailand. Thai Police officer Chai (Tony Jaa) becomes a prison guard in order to raise money for his daughter who has leukemia. He's assigned to keep an eye on Kit. Even though Chai and Kit are in opposing positions and they don't speak a common language, Kit turns out to be a suitable bone marrow donor who can save Chai's daughter. While Chai is determined to keep Kit alive, the warden Ko (Zhang Jin) wants him dead to ensure the smooth operation of the prison, which is the front for Mr Hung's organ trafficking business. Mr Hung shows up in Thailand so he can use his younger brother's (Jun Kung) heart in a heart ...

User Review


Rating: 8/10

When I first watched the trailer for SPL2, I was not expecting much. Not just because the trailer was poorly edited, but because of the director's past filmography (Monkey King), and that two of the original three characters were not in it (Donnie Yen and Sammo Hung). After the first half hour, I was quite surprised because it's well written, well shot, and well acted. Then it got insane at the prison break scene. The scale of the film suddenly went from an indie production to a gigantic blockbuster (what?). That 3- minute, continuous, and uncut oner was extremely well done. Then the final battle when Tony Jaa and Wu Jin fights Zhang Jin was... *no words to describe*. Besides the writing, acting, and cinematography, the music was also well done. The music during the prison break was really unique, and playing Vivaldi at the last battle was... also unique. It also payed many homages to the original SPL. The theme from the 2005 film was played before the final battle starts, and Wu Jin carried a bag with him at the final battle just like what Donnie Yen did. A complaint that I have is the meanwhile... meanwhile... editing. I don't really like this style of editing, the film becomes less intense. But the film was still great. I haven't watch the new Terminator or Jurassic World movies yet, but SPL2 is a great example of how to pay homage to a classic.
