YesAsia Editorial Description

Director Jeong Heung Soon takes up the directorial reins for My Wife Is A Gangster 2, the highly anticipated sequel to the 2001 box office hit! During a bloody rooftop gang brawl, crime boss Cha Eun Jin (Shin Eun Kyung reprising her role from the original) gets knocked for a loop and ends up losing her memory in the process. Eventually, she stumbles into a job as a delivery person for a Chinese restaurant owned by Yoon Jae Choi (Park Joon Gyu). Several months later, Eun Jin has successfully adapted to her new life at the Chinese restaurant and forged new friendships, completely oblivious to her prior history. Although Eun Jin initially annoys Jae Choi's troubled teenage daughter and starts getting harassed by an obnoxious neighbor, she also goes on to become the object of much attention, particularly from the men in the community.

Even so, the women have nothing but respect for Eun Jin whose martial arts skills and tough-as-nails persona prove helpful when taking down overgrown bullies, whether they be bank robbers, local gang members, or even sexist pigs! But once Eun Jin's old gang finally puts two and two together and seeks her out, it's a forgone conclusion that Eun Jin will recover her memory, retake her leadership position, and defend her community - but will she succeed? Ultimately, My Wife Is A Gangster 2 is the rare sequel that matches the fun of the original while adding a new dimension all its own. And be sure not to miss the Zhang Ziyi cameo!

Professional Review of "My Wife is a Gangster 2"

February 27, 2008

This professional review refers to My Wife is a Gangster 2 - The Legend Returns (DTS Version) (Hong Kong Version)
While "The Legend" does indeed make a comeback in My Wife Is A Gangster 2, one can't help but suspect that this film was made solely as an attempt to cash in on the success of the 2001 original, and thus, would turn out to be yet another case of diminishing returns as far as sequels go. Surprisingly, however, this 2003 continuation in the series ends up being an enjoyable ride in its own right, although it's not quite on par with its more popular predecessor.

While not entirely consistent with the events of the first film, My Wife Is A Gangster 2 again focuses on the titular crime boss, Cha Eun Jin (Shin Eun Kyung), as she finds herself thrust into an all-new domestic situation, one far removed from her familiar crime-infested environment. The movie opens with an all-out rooftop brawl involving tons of gang members, all of whom duke it out to the sounds of Bing Crosby's "White Christmas." Things take a dramatic turn, however, when the infamous female gangster arrives on the scene in all her wire-fu glory. But just as she's in the midst of kicking ass and taking names, she's knocked off the building and plunges down to the streets below. Due to a lucky break, the fall doesn't kill her, but it does give her amnesia.

Luckily for Eun Jin, she's found by Yoon Jae Choi, the kindly owner of a small-scale Chinese restaurant. Although it would probably make more sense to just drop her off at the local police station, Jae Choi spirits her away to his small-town burg without a moment's hesitation. Meanwhile, even though there's no corpse at the scene, Eun Jin's compatriots more or less presume their leader is dead, although a frantic search for her current whereabouts continues.

Several months later, the story picks up again with Eun Jin playing delivery girl for Jae Choi. She's fully ensconced in his single parent lifestyle, taking a somewhat maternal liking to Jae Choi's irritable, disapproving daughter. Although happy with her current situation, Eun Jin desires to know the truth about her past and continually tries jog her own memory, at one point even risking electrocution, albeit with comic Wile E. Coyote-style results.

Although her actual memory is slow to come back, her "Gangster Sense" is a bit quicker to return, as Eun Jin starts delivering high-flying beat downs to bank robbers, local gang members, and other punks who'd dare cross her or the people of her adopted community. And when the gangland boss White Shark catches wind of her new location, he pulls out all the stops to take his revenge on her. But will Eun Jin be able to regain her memory in time to put an end to the rival gang and save the people she's grown to care about? Well…yeah. This ain't no three hankie tearjerker, my friend.

Although the sequel more or less pales in comparison to its predecessor, My Wife Is A Gangster 2 does have its moments, and somehow, that's just enough to make it a film worth recommending. The segment of the plot that simply deals with Eun Jin's insertion into a new domestic situation is probably the highlight of the picture, infinitely more interesting than the action sequences that are likely meant to be the series' bread and butter. As far as performances go, Shin Eun Kyung is irresistible, as her character's tough girl persona makes for a humorous contrast with her new lifestyle among the locals. The film's approach to comedy is perhaps more silly than clever, but it's sure to bring a smile to your face one way or another.

My Wife Is A Gangster 2 dispenses with its more humorous tendencies when the fight scenes commence, resuming the stylish abandon of the introductory rooftop brawl. In a manner of speaking, the fight scenes are funny, in the sense that the wire fu employed is so ridiculously over-the-top as to be laughable, even though it's all played totally straight. Although there's a heavy use of stunt doubles and quick edits, the choreography is fine, but those expecting to see more believable stunts employed in a modern day fight scene may find the high-flying wuxia-infused theatrics a bit hard to swallow.

When all is said and done, My Wife Is A Gangster 2 isn't a masterpiece, and it won't likely make anyone's ten best list. But overall, it's a fun, good-natured sequel that gives viewers a chance to revisit the character of Cha Eun Jin without abandoning what made audiences like her in the first place. Hints of a further sequel are suggested in the film's tag ending in which Zhang Ziyi briefly appears, although this proposed third film hasn't seen the light of day as yet. If you like "fish-out-of-water" comedies or stylish action sequences, you could do worse than My Wife Is A Gangster 2, a surprisingly entertaining, if not entirely substantial sequel.

A sequel...nothing more Customer Review Rated Bad 5 - 5 out of 10
I have to admit I was attracted to this movie simply because I wanted to see the main characters again & see what else she had to fight through. The original had better fight sequences & the attempts at giving the character depth falls short most of the story. This movie can be neatly self-contained but is lacking simply because it is a sequel. Rent it, borrow it from me but consider buying it only if you simply have to have it in your action/comedy collection.

lol Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Deffinetly not as funny as the first but i would have to say its alot more entertaining because of the plot twists. Not many guys may agree with me but but i think Shin is gorgeous lol...she's so cute with her short hair. If you enjoy comedy movies with a mix of gangster then this will make a great add to your collection. Part 3 is in the works.

My Wife is a Gangster 2 Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Unlike sequels that usually fall short of the orginal show, "My Wife is a Gangster 2" actually delivers a better screenplay allowing the actors more depth and color and is better than the original.

There are still some pretty cool fight scenes, but the fights scenes are secondary to the plot, unlike the first movie where it appeared that the plot was based primarily on the fight scenes.

Shin Eun Kyung delivers in this movie and is allowed to explore more facets of her character as well as introduce more comedy. The listing of China's Ziyi Zhang is misleading as she has perhaps 1 minute in the movie at the very end. Otherwise, this movie is enjoyable and brings in characters from the original "My Wife is a Gangster" minus the husband (thank goodness).
