战狼 II (Zhànláng II), “Wolf Warrior II”, is the highest-grossing Chinese movie ever, and it broke all box office records when it hit China in the summer of 2017.
Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham, pay heed! There’s a new badass in town. Wú Jīng kicks an immeasurable number of butts in “Wolf Warrior II” (nobody talks about the first one), as his ex-special forces character singlehandedly rescues a factory full of innocent people from a tank-wielding rebel army in an unnamed African country while the navy stands by, waiting for UN permission.
Add a rampant epidemic, a hardcore American mercenary, and a stereotypically hot female doctor who literally gets carried off by the hero, and it’s clear that with “Wolf Warrior II”, Hollywood has lost its monopoly on explosive action movies.
The third one in the series has already been announced.
Feel the heat. Douban.
