Iron Monkey 2 (HK 1996)

Rating: *
Cast: Donnie Yen, Billy Chow

Terrible! No wonder Donnie Yen didn't want to make this film. This time, the Iron Monkey is back in 1930's China to foil some bad guys smuggling guns. Of course, Billy Chow shows up briefly at the end as the last hired thug to knock down. Stupid, stupid, stupid. Donnie Yen is always wonderful to watch, and the kid that plays his partner's son is a very good fighter, but totally lacking in charisma. There's also a really cute girl on hand to spruce things up a bit here and there. Good to very good fighting, but a serious chore to sit through.
