Movie Reviews

A lovers' reunion you won't want to miss
Daniel Jolley | Shelby, North Carolina USA | 12/29/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The Bride With White Hair 2 followed quickly upon the success of the original movie, taking up the tragic story of Cho Yi-Hang (Leslie Cheung) and his forbidden love Lien Ni-Chang (Brigitte Lin). By betraying his sacred pledge that he would never doubt his beloved, Cho has unleashed a monster. Ni-Chang's fury over Cho's betrayal drives her completely mad, transforming her into the white-haired witch who lives only to destroy every living member of the Eight Clans, especially the Wu Tang clan to which Cho belongs. As for Cho, he has retreated to Mount Shin Fung, guarding over a mystical flower whose bloom (and it only blooms once every twenty years) can cleanse and restore the woman he still loves.

Ten years have passed since the deadly night that Ni-Chang went mad and almost single-handedly destroyed the Wu Tang clan. Only two members of the clan survive: Cho, who has stood guard at Mount Shin Fung under blizzard conditions all these years, and Cho's nephew Kit (Sunny Chan). With Kit's impending marriage to Lyre (Joey Maan), the opportunity to further the bloodline exists - and so it is that Ni-Chang crashes the party, kidnaps the young bride, and takes her back to her own private castle full of man-hating, deadly women. There, Lyre is indoctrinated in the witch's "See a man, kill a man" philosophy and programmed to kill Kit with her own hands.

The Eight Clans send their best warriors to try and kill the witch and rescue Lyre, but they are all almost defenseless against Ni-Chang, who uses her deadly hair as a most effective weapon (sounds weird, I know, but it works really well). It soon becomes clear that the only person who might be able to defeat the white witch is Cho Yi-Hang, and this sets the stage for a most unforgettable reunion between the two former lovers.

This sequel is a more direct, action-oriented film than the original The Bride With White Hair, and for that reason I actually found it more enjoyable on the surface. Still, though, it lacks the depth and beauty of the original, largely because the two lovers do not meet again face to face until the final scene - although that meeting is well worth the wait. Most certainly, if you've seen and enjoyed the original, you'll want to experience this sequel."
Good followup sequel

"It's always hard to film a sequel to a great classic like "Bride With White Hair." I agree that the change in directors is to blame. Poor Brigitte Lin really mopes around in this film. Even in her depressed state, Brigitte is stunningly lovely. Christy Chung's role was amusing. I think the actors did their best with the script. As a huge Brigitte Lin and Leslie Cheung fan, it's still a good movie. The chemistry could have been better but remember they only had the final scenes together when their characters come face to face. It's hard to be combustible when you have approximately 10 minutes of screen time together."
Where are the stars?

"A very disappointing sequel to a great Hong Kong film. A change in directors pretty much explains what happened--there is none of the creativity and originality of the first movie. Perhaps as important, Brigitte Lin and Leslie Cheung are completely misused in this film. The Lin character has become a caricature, and Cheung only appears briefly (and his only significant appearance is at the end of the film). Without the romantic sparks between these two, and missing the imagination of Director Yu, this plays out as a very tired sequel. However, a Brigitte Lin move will always be worth at least three stars to me; I also thought the Christy Chung character was amusing. The DVD version is a good transfer, the subtitles legible, and a lot of language choices. Still, one can't help but be let down after the superb first movie, which really deserved a sequel--it should have been made by Dirctor Yu, however, and used the stars that helped make the first film so compelling."
EVERYTHING BAD ABOUT A SEQUEL IS HERE

"Unfortunate that this movie fell pray to the sequel curse. The first BRIDE showed promise, and it had that great open ending that left you waiting for the next movie to finish the story. Then, along comes BRIDE 2 and all you get is a ho-hum retread and nothing new or exciting like the first one. BRIDE 2 has its moments, but it lacks the steam and freshness that the first BRIDE had. Its worth watching, just dont get your hopes up for this to be as nearly good as the first."
