Trivia

The animated opening sequence actually pays homage to many famous cover arts of the Fung Wen comics which the movie Storm Warriors was based on. Examples are: Evil Wind sitting in front of his Blizzard Blade(Issue#85) Lord Godless bursting in the town gate (Issue#79), Cloud picking the one true Ulimate Sword from the countless Ultimate Swords in the Sword Sacrificial Event(Issue#46), Evil Wind facing behind with the Dragon Spine tied to his back while holding his broken Blizzard Blade(Issue#109), etc. See more »

Goofs

There was no indication that Lord Wicked has battled Lord Godless nor that they have ever met before but he was able to advise Cloud of Lord Godless' weakness. See more »

Storm Warriors
19 December 2009 | by helmuttySee all my reviews

The long-awaited sequel to Storm Riders is finally here. The Pang Brothers take the directing chair and turn the sequel into an action-packed filled with CGI effects. The CGI is touted as the best CGI in Chinese movies but it cannot be compared with big budget Hollywood movies. The special effects are incredible as not seen in Chinese movies.

The story: The action starts straight from the first scene. It shows Cloud and Wind not being able to defeat the powerful warlord and flee the scene. They then are trained in different ways. Cloud is taught by Nameless and Wind takes the evil way. With its fast pace, it brings you from one action scene to another without much drag. The special effects increasingly get better and by the time it comes to the last battle, the special effects are at best. With its epic score, it manages to suck me into the fantasy world. Yes, there is a downside since this is a non-stop action movie, its story is kept simple and there are even not much characters' developments.

Overall: If you are willing to watch a heavy CGI movie with no story and just be awed at the action scenes combined with CGI, you would probably enjoy this movie. If you are concerned about characters' developments, it is not for you. This movie is only for the fans or someone who wants to watch non-stop action filled with CGI with no story. There should be a part three and hopefully, every thing is in it with be amazing even its story.
