Ghetto Justice 2 review

First of all, I would like to emphasize that I really struggled finishing every episode of this drama or is it because Tiger Cubs and Witness Insecurity was too good?

There were a lot of connection to the first one and tvb even were able to pull off Christine Kuo’s relationship in this one smoothly without mentioning her in the first one. The Adele song was overused although it was supposed to show the romantic love between Kevin and Christine in the flashbacks.

Kevin Cheng: I didn’t like his character as much as himself in the first one. I couldn’t sense his righteous like he was in the first one. Maybe because there were too many intimate scenes between Kevin and Myolie or he’s just seems lazier in this sequel.

Myolie Wu: Her acting is still always stable as usual. She has to deal with her friend Christine like how she promised she would give up on Kevin after Christine wakes up from coma. I felt her role in the first one was more important than this one.

Sam Lee: I liked his chemistry with JJ and the scenes with them in the dandelions where they console each other about their exes. I couldn’t help but keep on yelling at him in my head about not noticing his mother’s illness and kept on helping Sis Han seeing her husband in jail. Helping people is good, but is that too much?

JJ Jia: This series made me like JJ. She’s sweet and helps her grandmother financially instead of worrying about herself.

Christine Kuo: I thought she lacks both the acting skills and the charisma but she still have time to improve. I didn’t really like her in Super Snoops, Tiger Cubs, and this drama. I did feel poor for her character about waiting for Kevin for 10 years but then suddenly found out he has a girlfriend. She tries hard to win Kevin back from Myolie. In one’s perpective, we might dislike her bug in Kevin and Myolie’s relationship but on the other hand we also feel poor for her. I liked how King Kong always cheered her up. I felt it is also Kevin’s fault for not clarifying this love triangle.

Crystal Li, Raymond Cho, and Jazz Lam: Raymond just makes me laugh in this drama about stealing Jazz’s letter and said how chicken Jazz is for not able to tell Crystal he likes her. Also I thought it was funny how he wore that purple shirt with the yellow tie and would always budge in between Jazz and Crystal. I thought Crystal was cute and acting is pretty okay for a newbie. I felt that Crystal did have a more enjoyable time with Jazz though cause how she always give him advice for the cases. Jazz’s acting is as good as he was in the first one. Funny how he always get teased by Kevin, Raymond, and Sam. I liked how Jazz was righteous in the court. Nevertheless the love triangle between Raymond, Jazz, and Crystal brings entertainment in this series.

KK Cheung: He plays the role of an attorney who would protect his daughter from being hurt by Kevin. I agreed with him about King Kong should be with Christine.

Evergreen Mak’s acting has always been stable and he did a good job in here as a villain. Would you guys want Evergreen Mak to die or to stay in prison?

Cases thoughts:

I didn’t really care for the cases but the Raymond Cho’s police case was my favorite. Myolie pretending to be evil to save Kevin in the Raymond Cho’s case reminds me of her first case in Ghetto Justice I when she tries to help Kevin win the case since she knows Claire is guilty. Lol. The social worker cases were such a drag to me. I felt kinda bored watching the problems of the social workers talking in the office. If Kevin and Myolie’s character had better script, then this series could be better. What I liked about the first one is how Law Ba was righteous and his intelligence. I enjoyed watching the court scenes in the first one more than this one.

Ending: Thought the ending was pretty rushed and the last case (Evergreen Mak’s case) used to the same scapegoat concept as the first one.

Ghetto Justice 2 was good for entertainment but not a recommended series if you want something exciting to watch.

I would rate this drama 3.5 out of 5 stars.
