REVIEW: Wolf Warrior 2

Review by Jon Donnis
The opening scene is perhaps one of the best underwater fight scenes I have ever seen, incredibly well shot and totally convincing, and that opening shot really does set the quality bar very high, especially when it is almost immediately followed by a very emotional scene. 

And that's how the film continues throughout. You can't look away or you'll miss something. 

Wu Jing plays Leng Feng the former soldier who finds himself defending the innocent against a brutal rebels and arm dealers in an African country.

It is easy to understand why this film quickly became the 2nd highest grossing film in Chinese history behind Star Wars The Force Awakens. 

Truly epic film that I give really high praise to.


Directed by and starring: Wu Jing (Call of Heroes, Kill Zone)

Main Cast: Wu Jing (Call of Heroes, Kill Zone 2), Frank Grillo (Warrior, Captain America: Civil War), Celina Jade (Arrow [TV Series], Skin Trade)

China's deadliest Special Forces operative, known as the Wolf Warrior (Wu Jing – Call of Heroes, Kill Zone), hopes to settle into a quiet life on the sea. But after he crosses paths with a ruthless band of mercenaries, overseen by a volatile and sadistic leader (Frank Grillo - Warrior, Captain America: Civil War), he must reaffirm his duty as a soldier to put an end to the terrorizing of innocent civilians. 

Fists, bullets, tanks and missiles will fly in this tour de force of bravura action film-making, all culminating into a climactic battle between the highly skilled Wolf Warrior, and the brutal mercenary leader.
