The Four II (2013)

Based off of  Woon Swee Oan’s novel series Si Da Ming Bu The Four II is the sequel to 2012 hit The Four also directed by  Gordon Chan and Janet Chun.  This is a fun series, very fun.  I find it very enjoyable to watch, the characters are awesome the action was amazing.  My only big complaint is it was a bit dark.  Not the story, although that got a bit dark too, but the lighting was a bit dark through the entire movie.

We get to see the return of the Fout Cold Blood (Deng Chao), Emotionless (Liu Yifei), Iron Hands (Collin Chou) and Life Stealer (Ronald Cheng) all members of the the Divine Constabulary headed by Zhuge Zhengwo (Anthony Wong).  This is the kind of series that I hope will get six or more movies as long as the scripts continue to be good.  Anthony Wong is a great actor and Liu Yifei is starting to impress me more with every movie (and TV series) I see her in.

I found The Four II to be a fun action adventure movie and well worth watching the trilogy
