Fong Sai Yuk II (1993)

Fong Sai Yuk II is one of the best sequels to a major hit that is worthy enough to stand alone on its own merits. Great action sequences mixed with funny romantic comedy elements make for compelling cinema. Josephine Siao Fong-Fong displays her comedy chops in her fine performance as Fong‘s mom. Jet Li Lian-Jie shows he is no slouch when it comes to being as funny as he is charming. 1993 was a big year for Li as he appeared in six films, each more compelling than the previous. The two Fong Sai Yuk films mark Corey Yuen Kwai’s best work since Saviour of the Soul and it’s sequel.
