Hard Revenge Milly Bloody Battle or HRM2 as I shall call it from herein, is a sequel to HRM1 as you can guess. The basic premise is someone who loved the protaganist from HRM1 is out for revenge and on top of that Milly is helping another young woman (whom in my opinion is badly dressed for battle) get revenge. It all helps dig in the mantra of revenging your loved ones will create an endless cycle of revenge.
Unlike it’s predecessor HRM2 is a bit longer and lasts just over one hour. Which in the end means a bit more talking, but don’t worry the violence is still there.
Personally, I found this not so fun. The elements are there, but in films like this you only really care about the action. It reminded me a lot of Azumi where the characters tlak about the wrongs of killing and then go on a killing spree. Try not to let that spoil your enjoyment as the action really is an improvement upon the first and it’s flipping impressive when you compare to the other over the top gore flicks which just uses a pretty face to stand and barely do anything.
I won’t spoil it too much for you, but I will let you know that it is still a fun film. New ways to killing and there is even a brief glimpse of sodomy.
This is definitely worth seeing and I’m rather anxious to see the third instalment coming soon (hopefully).
