The Skinny: It doesn't make a lick of sense, but this zany sort-of sequel to 92 La Legendary Rose Noire can entertain. Just don't expect to understand what's going on.
Review
by Kozo:
     This semi-sequel to the hit 92 La Legendary Rose Noire brings back effeminate cop Detective Lui (Tony Leung Ka-Fai), but apparently the first film never happened. This time out, Lui is competing with fellow cop Keith (Kenny Bee) to find escaped con Simon Yam. Meanwhile, Carina Lau and Veronica Yip appear as neighbors who transform into legendary villains Black Rose and White Rose. Then, lots of mugging, crazy antics, untranslatable comedy and general silliness occurs. Trying to make any sense of the film's plot is useless; just get on and enjoy the ride, which - when it's not annoying or tiresome - can be pretty damn funny. The viewer's personal preference is what makes or breaks this film. If you like unintelligible comedy, unsolicited musical numbers, and wacky martial arts sequences then you could do worse than Rose, Rose I Love You. At the very least, Tony Leung Ka-Fai displays the same screwy comic charm from 92 La Legendary Rose Noire, for which he won a best actor award. Nobody won anything for this film, but did they really intend to? (Kozo 1996)
