In 500 B.C., during Chinas famed 'Spring and Autumn Period', Kong Ze (Confucius), a commoner reverred for his outstanding wisdom, is made Minister of Law in the ancient Kingdom of Lu. Under his inspired leadership, Lu ascends to new heights but becomes a target of conquest for the warlike nation of Qi. Threatened with annihilation by their powerful neighbour, a desperate people turn to their greatest teacher to lead their most powerful army. When Confucius delivers a stunning victory against all odds, a jealous aristocracy sets out to destroy him, but they should never under-estimate a remarkable man whose wisdom is more powerful than the sword.

(us) wrote: The first movie was GREAT! But this one is completely off track. For me this is the WORST holiday special I've ever seen. When the title first came on the screen for the fist time I thought to myself "why would they add a 2 on the title? why didn't they just call it "Alpha and Omega a Howl-iday Adventure?" Anyways the animation is WORSE than the first one's and it's FULL of mistakes. This movie has a LOT of plotholes, the pups are annoyng, Runt looks like a girl, and Humphrey is real jerk to Kate at first, out of nowhere Lily turns brilliant, somehow their names are King and Princess and finally WOLVES CAN'T CLIMB TREES!!!My Decryption: Richard Rich simply didn't care about what happenned in the last film

Two seemingly dedicated parents just ditch their kids during a college orientation and spend the day flirting with each other. Why would they act so ridiculous and embarrass and disappoint their kids. The woman, I forget her name was really annoying, as was her daughter. I still love Andy Garcia who looked charming in his navy blue sport jacket bow tie and khakis.

(br) wrote: Johnnie To has become one of my new favorite directors. After watching the slow burning "PTU", I moved onto "Breaking News" which ironically is almost just the opposite in style and substance. This film has a lot of big time shots and an almost John Woo feel about it, with its ballet like bullet work and bigger than life theme."Breaking News" starts off as the police bust a group of gangsters as they are about to heist a bank and the ensuing carnage depicts the police in a bad light with the media. The police then develop a plan to pursue the criminals with the media spinning their way by making it 'a show' for the public. Of course, the criminals find themselves between a rock and a hard place and begin counter spinning the media and looking for their way out.I think conceptionally, "Breaking News" has a lot of solid things going for it. We've seen movies that tap into the idea of spinning the media but never in an action environment (at least I haven't) and with Johnnie To's minimalist scripting style and visual epic-ness, there is some great things spinning here. The opening 7 minute uncut camera shot of the initial criminal/police street gunfight is something of a directorial nightmare and massively impressive. Unfortunately, it also sets the standard for the film very high and the rest of the run time is spent trying to match that moment, for which, it never does. It does succeed in its visual prowess and general tone, which is still pretty enticing so that by the end of the film you feel a least moderately satisfied with your experience.Of course, as with most To films, the acting is once again superb. His minimalist scripting approach makes actors and actresses have to act without the words, and in "Breaking News" they do so admirably. Unfortunately, because of To's minimal story depth and character work, there is also far too much left out in the open. We get to see a moment in time, but hardly ever get to see the 'why' ever explained. Why is police man Cheung so obsessed with catching these guys (expect for the fact that they humiliated him)? What's the story with the 'director' of the show and Simon Yam's police chief? What's the criminal's connection to one another?
(it) wrote: great story and great acting for an independent flick but unfortunately not nearly enough ghost action or any other kind of action occurs in this movie. just to slow. some people might enjoy it for the story but it was a little to slow for my taste
