This is a highly commercial, overblown but entertaining followup to the 1986 attraction that broke boxoffice records and reaffirmed the gangster genre’s popularity in Cantonese cinema.

Superb actor Chow Yun-fat (his character Mark died in the last reel of Part I), returns as a twin brother called Ken, who lives in New York. Kid brother of Ti Lung, young cop Leslie Cheung is still stubborn as ever and dies a hero’s death.

This time Ti Lung is forced by circumstances to join an international counterfeit syndicate, his way out from prison. His brother (Cheung) is secretly assigned to collect evidence by the police department against the illegal activities of the Lung Ship Building Co. headed by Dean Shek.

Villain Ko plans to have Shek murdered to take over his shipyard and full control of the profitable trading. Somehow, Shek is saved from assassination attempts and smuggled to New York where Chow is running a Chinese restaurant.

The on-location Manhattan scenes are interesting. A deep friendship is developed between catatonic Shek and Ken, who both return to Hong Kong to set things right.
