Just when you thought it couldn't get better, Johnny To brought the Superheros back for a Sequel.
Hong Kong’s top three female leads reunite in this uneven sequel to last summer’s box-office smash. In a world ravaged by nuclear holocaust, the only untainted water available comes from the Clean Water Corporation, an unscrupulous conglomerate headed by an evil, mutated bad guy. The Heroic Trio – Chat (Cheung), Wonder Woman (Mui), and San (Yeoh) – have split up and gone their separate ways since the end of the last film, but fate (and the driving need for an Evian) reunites them in a quest to break the tyrant’s stranglehold on the agua supply. Chat has taken up as a money-mad mercenary, driving trucks full of uncontaminated water into the city for a fee; Wonder Woman has traded in her iron mask in favor of raising a daughter; and San works as a bodyguard alongside her hunchbacked, ski-masked sidekick. When the three of them are called on by the President to break up the water cartel, they reluctantly give in and embark on their most dangerous mission yet. Ostensibly a cross between George Miller’s Mad Max films and John Carpenter’s Escape From New York. - Marc Savlov, The Austin Chronicle
