Movie Reviews

Great Sequel
mr. snrub | Out there in La La Land | 02/24/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was a fan of Tokyo Raiders, and was quite eager for a sequel, but didn't think there would be one. I was wrong on this count. I was also wrong that it would not be the kind of sequel that is much better than the original.
Like Tokyo Raiders, SEOUL RAIDERS has a plot that makes about as much sense as that of MISSION:IMPOSSIBLE. Something to do with Owen lee (Richie Jen)an American-born Chinese CIA agent who steals some counterfeit money plates and flees to Seoul, Korea, and this necessitates that Wushu master/ secret agentLam (Tony Leung) join forces with porfessional thief/babe J.J. (Shu Qi)call upon his three Korean angels (Choi Yeo-Jin, Cho Soo-Hyn, and Cho Han-Na)to get the plates back.

Like any Jackie Chan movie, SEOUL RAIDERS is made to be a comedy-dominated martial arts action flick, and there are several entertaining fights. The opening fight with Tony Leung and Shu Qi playing keep-away with some evil-doers statr off the movie with a bang. One very short fight that takes play while Lam is rounding up the Korean babes, all of whom are very attractive, showcases Sun-ah, played by Choi Yeo-Jin beating up some sexaully harrassing bikers with some swift Tae Kwon Do kicks. Shu Qi's humorous battle with Richie Jen totally outdoes any of her martial arts in SO CLOSE. Arguably the best fight takes place in alley, with Tony Leung fighting off several Korean thugs, including a quick-moving bouncer/Tae Kwon Do expert. Being a Tae Kwon Do blackbelt myself, I am quite pleased with all of the Korean fighters execution in SEOUL RAIDERS, a sequel that would fully justify any upcoming BANKOK RAIDERS
