Storm Warriors 2

Thursday, December 17, 2009

I went to watch it yesterday. Well it was fun. I’ve been waiting for this movie and I’m glad that finally I went to watch it. The CGI was superb even though they were some parts seems not real but I don’t mind at all since it was adapted from story arc. However they were few unnecessary parts and also few unexplained parts or dare I say many. They didn’t explain much about the dragon bone and also what happened to Heart, Nameless and also Lord Wicked in the end. You can’t expect people to understand the whole complex characters as not all of the people have read the books. One more thing I’m totally not satisfied was the ending. Oh Cloud died at the end? I am flabbergasted. I really like him but why must he died in the end? The movie ends abruptly. I still wish he’s still alive. Maybe there would be another sequel after this. I don’t know.

I found the movie quite funny in times because the movie reminded me so much of Naruto anime. I really like the anime and when I saw Ekin Cheng a.k.a Wind in the movie turn to evil, it was somehow like Orochimaru. Anyone? Any Naruto lovers who watched the movie? What do you think? His eyes and long hair just like Orochimaru. I guess he would be perfect for Orochimaru character if the anime were to be made into a movie. But please don’t make movie for that anime. I don’t want them to ruin the anime like they did to Dragonball.

Anyway back to the movie, I don’t really like the idea of changing Chu Chu to another girl. I think Shu Qi was perfect for Chu Chu not this new girl. I don’t like Charlene Choi a.k.a Second Dream in the movie too. I just think the character wasn’t necessary at all and somehow she reminded me of Sakura from Naruto by which I don’t like. I hate the part where she interrupted the duel fight between Cloud and Wind. Cloud didn’t kill Wind because he has no heart to do so but eventually he died. Oh gosh.

The part when Wind was completely out of control as he was somehow possessed by the evil spirit also reminded me of Sasuke. Vey much alike that I once thought I was watching Naruto. Nah, maybe I was too fond of Naruto anime that I resemble them with characters in this movie. It’s crazy..!

I also hate the corny lines like
“Why didn’t you kill me in the first place?”
And some other more..I just couldn’t remember the exact phrase but the one where Nameless says like Cloud skills aren’t developed yet and also the conversation between Second Dream and Wind.
I just think Second Dream and Chu Chu characters weren’t necessary at all.

Overall as a whole this movie was not so good. If you like action type of movie you should go and watch it as it was packed with action, not to mention loads of good CGI but not the best still. Good costume and music (but sometimes too much). But if you’ve seen Storm Rider before, I don’t think you’re going to like Storm Warriors that much. For me Storm Rider was still the best. I first watched it when I was 10 years old and now I still keep the DVD. Love the first movie as the story line was much better and I still love Cloud. =]
