Cast & Credits
What I appreciated was that the original cast stayed the same, since not a lot of Chinese sequels do that anymore. However, the acting was not what I expected. Wu Qing, a name to indicate without emotion, was full of emotions this time and it made me cringe to see Liu Yi Fei act during the middle of it. However, twist at the end, made me appreciate her as an actress and love her as a whole for this sequel. The big bad wolf, Leng Xue, facing losses, was blinded temporarily by his emotions and was rash in making conclusions. However, Deng Chao's superb acting as he tried to face the difficulties ahead of him was touching. Collin Chou and Ronald Cheng are part of the main cast but seem to be supporting roles wherever they go. Not a lot of lines and not a lot of screen time but absolutely wonderful when they do show up.
I'm almost certain part 3 of the trilogy would be as brilliant as the last two. There are so many loose ends at the end of The Four 2, it made me devastated that it ended as it is. Ending the movie with Hu Xia's (Sad Fairytale) voice was an added bonus to the emotions that were swirling within me at the time. There were a lot more CG effects, for sure, but it didn't affect the beauty of the scenery. Wonderful cast, beautiful music, touching story line, just gather some tissues when the movie hits its climax. Beginning slow, slams all kinds of emotions into you and then ending fast, that's how this movie will be.
Definitely a must watch for those who have watched the first part of the movie. It was a spectacular watch and a great way to start off with 2014 movies (despite it being released in 2013, there hasn't been a good quality version uploaded until recently for me).
