The Legend (of Fong Sai Yuk) II has Jet Li reprise his role of one of China's premiere folk heroes, you know the one that looks like Wong Fei Hung, but is younger, funnier and more naive. Caught between three women - his fiancée, his wife and his mother (Josephine Siao once again stealing the show with her comedy chops) - Fong Sai Yuk is embroiled in a plot to destroy the rebel society he just joined, from the inside. Fun ad charming like the original, the last act turns things to a more desperate, dramatic turn, but director Corey Yuen doesn't let up on the absurd action scenes (by which I mean they are fantastic and original). The fireworks fight, the cobblestone fight, the bamboo raft fight, Fong fighting with a dozen katanas, the precarious bench pyramid (love me some bench fu!)... Just amazing stuff, all of it extremely dynamic and immediate. Just makes me want to watch the first one again, but while I'm sure it's better, the sequel is still pretty great.
