Product Description

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

1.0 out of 5 stars It's horrible, even for DTV standards January 3, 2003
I've always really liked the original Black Mask, starring Jet Li as the costumed hero fighting fellow supersoldiers. With it's exciting wire fu action scenes to the charms of Jet Li, (which came through despite the dubbing) it was a fun movie to watch. The sequel isn't. Although it's credited to Tsui Hark as director and Yuen Woo Ping as the choreographer, it bares none of the qualities that made either famous. Most of the action combines badly done CGI, even worse CGI characters, and villains in Power Rangers-quality prosthetic make up.
The new Black Mask is played by newcomer Andy On, who will probably never work again. He's a horrible actor with nothing to work with. The rest of the cast is made up of people you've seen before, but don't remember. WWE superstar Rob Van Dam, ex-WCW wrestler Tyler Mane, and ex-porn star Traci Lords make up the wrestler villains, along with a token black guy to take on BM in a series of unexciting fights. They're lead by 2 guys I didn't remember until the end, one played by the shop owner from The Crow, and one played by the military dean from Episode 39 of the Sopranos. Neither do well in their cardboard cutout roles.
For fans of bad movies, you might get some "so bad it's good" entertainment, since this is grade A material for that.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great terrible film to watch. January 19, 2004
By A Customer
If you love bad films, this one is a must. If you don't, don't bother reading this, just forget this film ever happened. Ok here is what happens; Black Mask dude doesn't like Goggle Guy. Goggle Guy doesn't like Blask Mask dude. They fight. People who couldn't make the grade for a WWC league appearance take hormone injections that make them into power-ranger monsters that fight Black Mask dude. Goggle guy is eventually defeated, after a great scene where he is hanging in the middle of a room by wires for god knows what reason. Queen of Porn leftovers Traci Lords makes the film all the funnier. Surreal, bizarre, awful. Enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars bizarre, but engaging January 4, 2006
I agree with many reviewers when I say "What the hell is this movie on?" Black mask versus a giant brain versus evil wrestling mutants? Very strange. But in the end I think that's a good thing.

You're not going to see many movies like this. For its uniqueness alone it earns 4 stars in my book. While not nearly as good as the original Black Mask (the loss of Jet Li doesn't help) it is a heckuva lot weirder. The story seems cobbled together from different elements, but they still managed to make something coherent.

Tsui Hark's direction is always more interested in being cool than clear, and here it shows. The action scenes can be hard to follow. But how many mutant martial art movies are there? Guyver 1 & 2 are the only ones that come to mind. This movie is better than Guyver 1, not nearly as good as Guyver 2.

But a unique film experience and well worth seeing if only for the "Wow, did that snake guy just swallow a security guard?" moments.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why oh why did they do this ? ?? ? October 14, 2003
Why? By the gods of hell did they make this movie. The first Black Mask was difficult enough to watch. This was probably the worst movie ever made. They tried to make it look like a comic book but failed. I mean the plot (if you can call it one), seamed to be written by a 10 year old with brain damage. A giant brain in a jar was given credit for creating Black Mask and another guy wearing messed up glasses. Another freak was using animal and plant DNA and splicing it with his wrestlers. Well, one wrestler freaks out and turns into probably the worst looking monster ever created. They all end up turning into really poorly thought out monsters (all except the lovely Traci Lords). The whole movie is filled with terrible CG and bad fighting. The makers of this movie tried using big named low grade actors and just E grade supporting players to try and pull this crud fest off. Tyler Mane (hoping to do better than his Sabretooth role, nope), Rob Van Dam (he really should hurt his manager for this movie), And Traci Lords (the poor woman really needs a good break, but sorry this aint it). If these people ever get together to make another movie we all should run away.

4.0 out of 5 stars Black Mask -- Not Black Biker-Leather! March 8, 2003
I thought there was nothing wrong with Black Mask 2 whatsoever! The action was beautiful, the costumes were "on-point", and style was like how a "super-hero comic-book"-style movie is supposed to look like and be like ...with the regular people as inferior back-drops and minimal, but necessary cop-show droppings. The producers, creators, and directors of this movie should do all the superhero comic-book movies this way. The costumes --like the character(s) powers-- should be unique to each of their personalities, and not look like something that is seen every day. We should be in AWE! I'm ordering this DVD for myself and, as a teaching tool. Highly Recommended!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars City of What MASK. January 7, 2003
OK, This movie is there as a B-Rated Movie.
The CGI is to fake and yet still cool.The Fight Scenes are not like Jet Li's style.Andy On makes a great Black Mask,But I cant really except him well as I did with Jet Li.
His Style of fighting is well done with Yuen Wo Ping's Fight director.
MOVIE:it's ok
To Buy this movie:Go ahead if you have BLACK MASK 1
Also This movie doesnt have the HIP POP soundtrack Like it did with the like the first movie.And theres Too many Monster's.
And to much to take this Movie seriouslly.
I love HK Movies,but this makes it too amature than Pro.
