Product Details

Product Description


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

5.0 out of 5 stars A great terrible film to watch. Jan. 20 2004
By A Customer
If you love bad films, this one is a must. If you don't, don't bother reading this, just forget this film ever happened. Ok here is what happens; black mask dude doesn't like Goggle Guy. Goggle Guy doesn't like blask mask dude. They fight. People who couldn't make the grade for a WWC league appearance take hormone injections that make them into power-ranger monsters that fight black mask dude. Goggle guy is eventually defeated, after a great scene where he is hanging in the middle of a room by wires for god knows what reason. Surreal, bizarre, awful. Enjoy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing Dec 27 2003
By JL1984
I suppose what made this movie such a let down was the fact that Jet Li made no return and there was nearly no return from any other character in the original cast. This movie is a cheesy knock-off of X-Men and while the director overly uses his computer generated effects in an attempt to accentuate the picture and make the movie a bigger hit, it only makes the movie worse. The martial arts scenes are so lame that I was surprised to see no use of onomatopoeia following every punch and kick. The characters are laughable and cannot be taken very seriously. For those hoping to see a great movie involving Jet Li, don't be fooled. He does not appear in this movie at all, and to buy this movie would simply be a wasted effort.

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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why oh why did they do this ? ?? ? Oct. 15 2003
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.

Black Mask 2 has to be the worst ever sequel to a fine Hong Kong action film. The original Black Mask had spectacular fight choreography plus the talent of one Jet Li. This sequel however, is cheesy from the get go. It's no wonder that Li refused to be in this misfire of a movie. Not only is the acting terrible, but we are bombarded with really bad CGI, and a plotline that makes absolutely no sense at all. About the only good things I can recommend about this film are the creature makeup and the fact that Tyler Mane is probably using this movie as acting practice to reprise Sabertooth with many more speaking lines in either an X-Men sequel or a Wolverine spinoff movie. In short, see the original with Jet Li instead of this pile of dreck.
