Synopsis by Judd Blaise
Following closely on the heels of the original Fong Sai Yuk, a martial arts action-comedy featuring the acrobatic skills of martial arts star Jet Li, Fong Sai Yuk 2 offers a similar mixture of adventure, action, and farce. The previous film had concluded with Fong Sai Yuk working with the secret Red Lotus Society to defeat an evil villain; now, Sai Yuk is undergoing his official initiation into the society. Despite being the society's newest member, he is asked to participate in an important mission: helping to retrieve a sacred box containing a valuable secret. The initial attempt fails, however, and Sai Yuk is the only one to survive. The society's leaders accuse him of cowardice and incompetence, but, thanks to the intervention of Sai Yuk's equally tough mother, he is given a chance to redeem himself. This time, however, he is to woo the daughter of the powerful governor who holds the box -- an idea which obviously will not please his fiancee Ting Ting. While the farcical elements are not quite as well-handled as in its predecessor, Fong Sai Yuk 2 does match the original by delivering a number of spectacularly choreographed fighting sequences.
