This film is part two of a two-part movie. That's right, a two-part movie: it is not a sequel. So I would ordinarily advise that one should watch the first half before watching this. However, on this occasion I would rather say that it's better to watch neither. Ostensibly, perhaps, the movie was split in two because there was a very long story to be told. Each 'half', however is only ninety minutes long, so a 'whole' movie would be three hours. That's long, but there have been plenty of longer movies made. What's more, there really isn't a great deal of a story told, rather it relies too much on drawn out melodrama and repeated fight (gun and fist) scenes which seem to be there in profusion because the writer has run out of ideas, so there's really no justification for splitting the film in two at all. Trimmed down to about eighty to ninety minutes overall it might be worth watching, but as it is, watching it is an endurance.
