Monster Hunt 2 捉妖記2
More mischief from adorable Wuba and his monster cohorts in the sequel to the marvellous fantasy blockbuster that became China’s bestselling film.
A monster that can bring balance to the human and monster worlds, Wuba has been living happily with other monsters in a remote village ever since he left his human parents, Tianyin (Jing Boran) and Xiaolan (Bai Baihe). When the evil Monster King raids the village, Wuba is forced to escape into the human world once more. At Clear Water Town, he encounters BenBen, a kind-hearted monster who works with Tu (Tony Leung Chiu-wai), a greedy swindler who will sell anyone out for a price. However, when Tianyin and Xiaolan sense that Wuba is in danger, they rush to his rescue.
After creating MONSTER HUNT which became China’s biggest hit ever on release, Raman Hui ups the ante with an ambitious sequel that expands his fantastic world of adorable monsters. MONSTER HUNT 2 is a colourful feast of special effects and dazzling action unlike anything that’s been created in Chinese cinema. The franchise also gets a major boost in star power with the addition of Tony Leung Chiu-wai.
