Summary: Wonderful film. I first watched this when it came out in theaters and remains one of my favorites. This integrates the right amount of magical fighting and romance, even humor into a movie. Joey Wong has improved on her acting since the first, Jackie Cheung and Tony Leung make quite the comical pair. Tony's naivete as a monk and Joey's advances are well played out. Lo Lo (demon woman/man) is even more evil although less tongue lashing.
If you can enjoy a movie that does NOT depend on martial arts this is definitely for you. And just because there were no martial arts there are other visuals to entertain you (more scenes of the evil Chinese ghost girls doing their thing), the beautiful use of the costumes and colors, the images of Lo Lo in the ending. Some aspects will bring back similar scenes from Ghost Story 1--but it doesn't do anything negative to the movie.
