It's safe to say that director Soi Cheang's latest theatrical bit of action fanfare, SPL 2: A Time For Consequences, is a hit no matter what some opinions may be. Several reviews floating online are lending well-balancef earfuls to the film's credit as an otherwise exciting follow-up to the first film in 2005.

Tony Jaa and Wu Jing star at the forefront of this thematic continuation which sees Jing as an embattled undercover cop teaming up with a Thai prison guard to take down a courrupt warden. A film like this being celebrated this much deserves a broader release, and of course it was only a matter of time before Well Go USA snagged it for us, which could also mean great things with the third installment of the trilogy now pending.

Read the official announcement!
Plano, TX (August 10, 2015) – Well Go USA Entertainment has announced the acquisition of US and Canadian distribution rights to SPL 2: A TIME FOR CONSEQUENCES, directed by Pou-Soi Cheang, multiple award-winning director of MOTORWAY and THE MONKEY KING. 
SPL 2: A TIME FOR CONSEQUENCES stars Tony Jaa (ONG BAK), and Louis Koo (DRUG WAR, FLASH POINT), as well as Wu Jing (SHAOLIN, WOLF WARRIOR) and Simon Yam (IP MAN 2, MAN OF TAI CHI), marking their return to the series, but in entirely new roles. 
In SPL 2, a drug-abusing undercover cop (Wu Jing) is on the verge of exposing the dying kingpin of an organ trafficking ring (Louis Koo). But an unexpected bust blows his cover and lands him in a Thai prison, caught between life, death, and a prison guard with unprecedented martial arts skills (Tony Jaa). 
“We can’t wait to bring the next chapter of the SPL story to the fans who made it a cult classic,” said Doris Pfardrescher, President and CEO of Well Go USA Entertainment. “Combining Tony Jaa with a cast of stars from our best-selling martial arts and action movies was beyond our expectations,” she said. “It’s been worth the wait.”  
The deal was negotiated between Doris Pfardrescher at Well Go USA Entertainment and Chiu-Yi Leung of Bravos Pictures on behalf of the filmmaker. 
SPL 2: A TIME FOR CONSEQUENCES will make its debut and premiere in a series of North American film festivals through the fall, with a theatrical release to follow in early 2016.

  1. I sure wish it wouldn't take so long for movies released in Asia to be released in the U.S.. Are there any official websites that you can at to watch this now?? It's hard to wait so long when you know other people in the world are watching and enjoying it...

  2. And for the record, I'm talking about sites that you pay to watch because I want to support the film!

    1. @Lee Hicks I wouldn't know of any sites to be honest. I assume unless you share residency Hong Kong and China and are in those home video/VoD markets, your best option at this juncture is to wait until Well Go USA releases it officially.
