Action stars Wu Jing, Max Zhang Jin and Tony Jaa in the film SPL 2 (SAT POR LONG II) fought ferociously. Director Soi Cheang Po Shui and action director Nicky Li Chung Chi praised all three for each having his own strong suit. Cheang Po Shui said, "Tony is very wild and very direct, almost knocking you down with every move; Zhang Jin fights with beauty and detail, so we would come up with prettier moves for him; Wu Jing is accurate, but this time he had to take a beating and tortured. He had the hardest time! (How about in real life?) No one knows unless they actually fight! One day let's arrange for them to fight for real!" Uncle Chi felt that Tony had a weight advantage.
Cheang Po Shui said that the new film will continue Wilson Yip Wai Shun's "curse theory" from the previous film. With the intense story he insisted on the fights to be rational. "Many people say just set up a ring and fight as soon as everyone get there! I feel that all three know how to act, so we spent a lot of time to discuss their characters."
