"I just saw Wolf Warrior 2. I think it is better than its first frame. It used many high-tech special effects and was shot in Africa, which makes it appealing to international audience. The fighting scenes were awesome."

"Wolf Warrior 2" tells the story of a former Chinese Special Forces operative's adventure in Africa's war-torn regions occupied by insurgents and mercenaries to rescue his compatriots and African friends.

According to film database Maoyan, the total revenue of "Wolf Warrior 2" is estimated to reach 565 million U.S. dollars, which will set a new record in the world's largest film market.
