Kill Zone 2
Dir. Cheang Pou-soi. 2015, 120 mins. Digital projection. In Mandarin, Cantonese, and Thai with subtitles. With Tony Jaa, Zhang Hin, Simon Yam, Wu Jing, Louis Koo. When an undercover cop gets too close to revealing the mastermind of a drug syndicate, his cover is blown. Double-crossed and under a false identity, he's thrown into a Thai prison, where a guard discovers the inmate is a bone marrow match for his dying daughter. In this giddily frenetic follow-up (though not a sequel) to modern martial arts epic Kill Zone, action icons Tony Jaa (Ong Bak, The Protector) and Zhang Jin (Ip Man 3) team up with Hong Kong megastars Yam, Jing, and Koo for a breakneck story of dirty cops, prison riots, and black market organ transplants, all brought together by a nonstop series of inventive, bone-crunching set pieces.
