Kill Zone 2
Hong Kong, 2015, 120 min., Color, Mandarin (with English subtitles)
In the wake of a botched bust meant to shut down an organ-trafficking ring, undercover cop Kit has his cover blown. As payback, the sinister gang sends him to a Thai prison run by a corrupt warden who swaps Kit's identity with that of a prisoner facing a life sentence.

Meanwhile, Chai, a guard at the prison, is desperate to find a bone-marrow donor who will save his daughter's life. Though aware of Kit's wrongful imprisonment, Chai has no choice but to thwart the man’s escape attempts while he tries to save enough money for the life-saving operation. Both men continue to fight to save themselves as well as the lives of their loved ones, and no prison can hold them.

In keeping with Hong Kong cinema, every flying fist or foot is matched with appropriate ludicrous melodramatic highs. This bone-snapping flurry of gun battles, prison riots, and frenetic fight choreography will knock the wind out of you—and maybe a few teeth, too.
