Who didn't love the original movie, SPL, starring Donnie Yen, Sammo Hung and Simon Yam? It's one of the best Hong Kong action movies of the past ten years, so it's hardly surprising a sequel is in the works. No Yen on this one, however, we do get Tony Jaa, Jing Wu and Andy On kicking seven shades out of each other, as well as Yam returning to the scene of the crime. SPL 2 opens in China at the end of July.
Synopsis: A Hong Kong cop named Kit busts a major gangster only to find his cover blown and his main witness gone. The gangster, in retaliation, has him kidnapped and put in a Thai jail with a false criminal identity. A lowly prison guard, Chai, with extraordinary fighting skills, guards kit and prevents his escape from prison. The prison guard discovers Kit’s real identity and helps him to escape in return for agreeing to save his sick daughter. Together, Kit and Chai must take down the gangster and his crew.
