MyWifeIsAGangster2

Plot: During a vicious gang war on the roof-top of a high rise building, Eun-Jin, the fearless leader of the Scissor Gang falls from the great height. Surviving the drop, Her lifeless body is found by Jae-Chul, a single father/Chinese Restaurant owner from a remote town.

Now suffering from amnesia Eun-Jin can’t remember anything about her past. In the mean time she works part-time as a delivery driver for Jae-Chul and spends the rest of her time trying to jog her memory.

Complications arise when Eun-Jin’s the presumed dead arch-nemesis appears with plans on demolishing the town, replacing it with a Shopping Mall. Now it’s down to the sexist gangster in South Korean to show us what she’s made of once again!

Review: Right away this movie is going to get a mixed reaction from everyone. If you’ve decided to see this movie, it must mean you enjoyed the first? I loved the first movie. So what’s went wrong with this movie? I’ll explain.

When ever we hear about a sequel of a movie we love we’re always cautious, “Will it be as good as the original?”, “Is it the same cast?” and “Is this going to be the last movie, is there more?” etc. It will have struck a blow to many when they found out that Cho Jin-gyu (the original director) wasn’t directing this movie. Even worse was that only a handful of the original cast members were returning for this time around. So with all these negatives, what kept the publics interest? Zhang Ziyi!

Yes! the pint-sized Crouching Tiger star was lined up to play against leading actress Shin Eun-Kyung, unfortunately Ziyi only makes a cameo appearance at the end of the movie.

The film itself is good, decent storyline, good cast, funny characters and decent action (very wire-orientated).

It’s a short review, but I only wanted to explain my thoughts on the movie and hopefully it will help you decide whether you want to see this movie or you don’t. Enjoy!
