This outlandish comic book of a movie stars newcomer Andy On as the genetically altered warrior played by Jet Li in the original Black Mask. As Zeus--the gigantic brain-in-a-vat that created Black Mask--sends his newest super-warrior to track Black Mask down, the nefarious owner of a professional wrestling network has a plan to genetically alter his wrestlers and turn them into animalistic half-humans--meanwhile, Black Mask falls in love with a beautiful geneticist who's paralyzed with phobic anxiety whenever a man touches her... None of the plot makes much sense, but sense is hardly the point. Though the computer-generated special effects are fairly crude, the relentless camera movement and rapid-fire editing of Hong Kong action master Tsui Hark (Peking Opera Blues, Time and Tide) and fight choreographer Yuen Wo Ping (The Matrix) keep the spectacle rolling along entertainingly. Also featuring Traci Lords as a kick-ass wrestling queen. --Bret Fetzer

Famous Hong Kong director Tsui Hark brings back cult action film "Black Mask" (the original featured cool Jet Li) which he once produced. But this remake minus Li is simply awful. Sorry to say this, but IT STINKS. Consdiering that fact that Tsui Hark once helmed exciting "Once Upin a Time in China" series, it is sad to see this downfall. What happened to him? Is that because he made "Knock Off"? Or "Double Team"?
Anyway, if you have to see "BM2" keep this in mind. Story is low on credibility, but that doesn't matter. If you hear the hero of the film in mask is an ex-super soldier, and a bunch of bad guys (including pro-wrestlers genetically turned into monsters!!) are aiming at his life for whatever reasons I don't know, it's OK. Just give me good actions, and I'll be happy.
And the film's stunt coordinator is Yuen Wo Ping, which means something to action flick fans. Sadly, the actions here are far below the level we can expect from his name. Actions are fewer than they should be, and they are just standard ones, nothing special (by his standard, of course). After watching Jackie or Jet or even Keanu, it is a huge disappointment.
The only interesting factor I can find is its casting; the "mask" is a newcomer Andy On, whose action and acting is just passable. Of more interest is the participations of Jon Polito (as wrestlers' manager), who is regular of Coen Brothers. The wrestlers are played by Tyler Mane (in "X-Men" as Siber Tooth); Rob Van Dam who is really a wrestler; Andrew Bryniarski (seen as "Leather Face" in new "Texas Chainsaw Massacre") and Tracy Elizabeth Lords as 'Cameleon.'
Tracy Lords? Yes, that's her. Surprisingly Ms.

Why? By the gods of hell did they make this movie. The first Black Mask was difficult enough to watch. This was probably the worst movie ever made. They tried to make it look like a comic book but failed. I mean the plot (if you can call it one), seamed to be written by a 10 year old with brain damage. A giant brain in a jar was given credit for creating Black Mask and another guy wearing messed up glasses. Another freak was using animal and plant DNA and splicing it with his wrestlers. Well, one wrestler freaks out and turns into probably the worst looking monster ever created. They all end up turning into really poorly thought out monsters (all except the lovely Traci Lords). The whole movie is filled with terrible CG and bad fighting. The makers of this movie tried using big named low grade actors and just E grade supporting players to try and pull this crud fest off. Tyler Mane (hoping to do better than his Sabretooth role, nope), Rob Van Dam (he really should hurt his manager for this movie), And Traci Lords (the poor woman really needs a good break, but sorry this aint it). If these people ever get together to make another movie we all should run away.

Before I start I have to say that it looks like they put a lot more money into this movie. Cheesy as it was it actually was shot very well. So if they're going to put this much money into something this bad why can't they make a 3rd live action movie of the Guyver. I mean the first one was stupid but the second one is why I think it's cool enough to deserve another sequel.
Ok that being said, first of all I love Jet Li, so when I saw the first Black Mask, I hated it because the dubbing was horrible and they over did it with the rap. It may have good rhythm but it just doesnt mix very well in a fight scene. I see a martial arts film I expect the music to get the adrenaline pumping.
The good thing about this film, it doesn't look dated. Unlike the first black mask which was made in 1999 this one doesn't look like it was made in the 80's. The music wasn't annoying and instead of using horrible dubbing they actually got actors to speak english very well. The first 10 minutes or so in this film are the best, after they enter the city thats when it's no longer a Black Mask movie. It's more like the game Bloody Roar. I mean it's like they completely abandoned the first 10 minutes of the movie and just started it all over with the wrestlers. If they had stick with that it might've done ok without Jet Li.
I gave it 2 stars because of the fight scenes and the way the movie looked. Sorry but I've seen plenty of HK movies and they all look very dated. What really [is bad] is that it seems they put a lot of money into this and went through a lot of trouble with the fight scenes and effects and only came out with this garbage.
Two Stars, in my opinion rent it only don't buy it. The DVD doesn't even have any special features except three trailers. And as for the actress who freezes up whenever a guy touches her, I think most guys when they saw this movie said to themselves That's not what I would've done if I was with her.

I've always really liked the original Black Mask, starring Jet Li as the costumed hero fighting fellow supersoldiers. With it's exciting wire fu action scenes to the charms of Jet Li, (which came through despite the dubbing) it was a fun movie to watch. The sequel isn't. Although it's credited to Tsui Hark as director and Yuen Woo Ping as the choreographer, it bares none of the qualities that made either famous. Most of the action combines badly done CGI, even worse CGI characters, and villains in Power Rangers-quality prosthetic make up.
The new Black Mask is played by newcomer Andy On, who will probably never work again. He's a horrible actor with nothing to work with. The rest of the cast is made up of people you've seen before, but don't remember. WWE superstar Rob Van Dam, ex-WCW wrestler Tyler Mane, and ex-porn star Traci Lords make up the wrestler villains, along with a token black guy to take on BM in a series of unexciting fights. They're lead by 2 guys I didn't remember until the end, one played by the shop owner from The Crow, and one played by the military dean from Episode 39 of the Sopranos. Neither do well in their cardboard cutout roles.
For fans of bad movies, you might get some "so bad it's good" entertainment, since this is grade A material for that.
