A Time for Consequences/_Kill Zone 2_ proves that a movie with plenty of intense martial arts action does not necessarily have to place less emphasis on the plot. The narrative combines several perspectives which build an increasingly complex picture of the police fighting against crime.
Before becoming one of the most famous directors of Chinese blockbusters, Cheang Pou-soi had become well-known for writing brilliant action stories. And it is SPL2/_Kill Zone 2_ that exemplifies this reputation. The film follows a straightforward path to its grand finale with no hit missing its target. Equally important is the organic connection between two different traditions of martial arts. Chinese fistfights are perfected by globally renowned star, Wu Jing, while invincible miracle Tony Jaa’s specialty are knee strikes aiming for the opponent’s head. The Sisyphean task of the police is complemented by excellent choreography and the result is a multi-layered crime story that will keep you entertained.
