The Four II (2013)


Within a short span of a year, Gordon Chan returns with his sequel to The Four, a supposedly planned trilogy based on the novels of wuxia writer Woon Swee Oan. We highly recommend that you catch the original before you pay a ticket to this one though - else you might end up feeling sore about the constant references to the first, and even more so when the movie just abruptly ends.

Since we have been introduced to the group of misfits that formed the Divine Constabulary led by the wise Zhuge Zhenwo (Anthony Wong) in the The Four, the sequel wastes no time in setting up the events that happened after the death of the evil and powerful An Shigeng (Wu Xiubo). As it turned out, An is still not dead but, for reasons unexplained, has been transformed into sort of a parasite kept alive by his father and hidden in a cliff far away. His father, Lord An, in the mean time is hell bent to take revenge against the Divine Constabulary and he also has plans to usurp the Emperor because (well) every villain out there believe he or she deserves the throne.

like a lot of planned trilogy's it suffers because it doesn't conclude the story so you might want to wait until part 3 is released before watching The Four .. however both part 1 and part 2 were very well made a lot of cgi flying and wire-fu but some interesting characters and a few good fight scenes(more in part1 than part2 though) and some very good cinematography at times,what i loved most was how they were prepared to really let loose with the magic/fantasy aspects of the story western cinema just doesn't seem to get how to do that even in the big budget fantasy films that Hollywood produces... another excellent part of the production was the score and the musical direction it was very impressive...i really need to see part 3 now.
