BLACK MASK 2: CITY OF MASKS is a thrill-a-minute sci-fi adventure from Tsui Hark, the director of Knock Off and Double Team and Yuen Wo Ping, the martial arts choreographer of The Matrix. Andy On takes on the role Jet Li made legendary in this action-packed sequel to the 1999 genre classic. Also starring Traci Elizabeth Lords (Blade, Virtuosity), Tyler Mane (Joe Dirt, Sabretooth from X-Men), Jon Polito (The Man Who Wasn't There, The Tailor of Panama) and WWF Superstar Rob Van Dam. While searching for a cure for the biological abnormality that gives him super powers, Black Mask (On) stumbles upon a terrorist group intent on dropping a DNA bomb on the human race. But in order to put a stop totheir devious plan, he must first battle a group of chemically enhanced professional wrestlers withthe ability to morph into monstrously powerful mutants ... and they won't stop until the chemical makeup of the entire population is tweaked forever.
This outlandish comic book of a movie stars newcomer Andy On as the genetically altered warrior played by Jet Li in the original Black Mask. As Zeus--the gigantic brain-in-a-vat that created Black Mask--sends his newest super-warrior to track Black Mask down, the nefarious owner of a professional wrestling network has a plan to genetically alter his wrestlers and turn them into animalistic half-humans--meanwhile, Black Mask falls in love with a beautiful geneticist who's paralyzed with phobic anxiety whenever a man touches her... None of the plot makes much sense, but sense is hardly the point. Though the computer-generated special effects are fairly crude, the relentless camera movement and rapid-fire editing of Hong Kong action master Tsui Hark (Peking Opera Blues, Time and Tide) and fight choreographer Yuen Wo Ping (The Matrix) keep the spectacle rolling along entertainingly. Also featuring Traci Lords as a kick-ass wrestling queen. --Bret Fetzer
