It's been five years since Tokyo Raiders was a Lunar New Year hit, and nobody was really clamoring for a sequel. Regardless, they made one anyway: Seoul Raiders. Director Jingle Ma, whose last film was the egregious Silver Hawk, brings back Tony Leung Chiu-Wai as Lam, the toughest Chinese private eye in Tokyo, and a secret member of the Japanese Security Bureau. Lam is essentially a secret agent who possesses free reign to engage in whatever law enforcement—or chaos-creating undercover activity—that he chooses. His latest target: "The Avenger", a set of flawless counterfeiting plates created by Middle Eastern interests as a way of sticking it to the United States. Lam steals them from a lockup in Central, and manages to escape with a pack of suit-clad baddies AND cat burglar JJ (Shu Qi) on his tail. But Lam is double-crossed by his CIA contact, Chinese-American agent Owen (Richie Ren), who drugs Lam and takes off with the plates. Add Synopsis In Portuguese
Cast & Credits
"Seoul Raiders" as the previous part of the story also somehow remains the same, two boys and a girl, the plot was good, but the only thing I was missing is the climax, has no climax, could have been much better as The former then a total disappointment in the end, but otherwise the director somehow manages to keep the audience involved until the end.
The cinematography in fight scenes left much to be desired, were not sufficiently creative by HK standards, moreover, the camera angles in some fight sequences were not wide, the lack of illumination when watching them shoot punches and kicks without Adequate lighting was the pinnacle of frustration also the inopportune moments of slow motion marred the mood of the film.
The highlights stand for the comical parts and daring acrobatics though there was nothing too hard to do.
Overall "Seoul Raiders" is a terrible experience. Tony and Richie Ren are the only ones in comedic scenes that keep pace alive so you do not feel the shortcomings of this boring and boring action movie.
