The Best Actors Andy Lau Tak Wa, Sean Lau Ching Wan, Tse Kwan Ho and Mainland star Ni Ni starred, Herman Yau Lai To directed film SHOCK WAVE 2 (CHAK DAN JUEN GA 2) made over HK$ 1.2 billion RMB at the Mainland box office. Yau Lai To earlier praised the leads as top notch. They were fully prepared on their own. Ni Ni had many action scenes but was able to handle them. He said, "We made arrangement for every punch and kick, and had someone teach her how to hold a gun." She rapidly turned into an action actress.
The film originally was scheduled to be released simultaneously in China and Hong Kong. Due to the pandemic, its Hong Kong schedule has been postponed indefinitely. He admitted that he could do nothing about that. "Many people's lives have been messed up. I haven't been too worried about the box office. I left that for the boss to worry about. I would only think about how to make the movie great." He was not afraid that the audience would make comparisons between the first film and this one. "This one's explosions and action were even more intense than before. The airport and Ching Ma Bridge explosions were never before seen in film history!"
