"Chinatown Detective 2" is the second series of the Chinatown Detective series. It tells Tang Ren that he has deceived Qin Feng to New York to participate in the World Detective Contest for the huge bonus. The first detective combination of Chinatown is once again risking their lives in New York. The film became the box office champion of Chinese film history 2D movies and comedy movies at the box office over 3.388 billion yuan in mainland China, and the total box office ranks in the top three in Chinese film history. Excellent production has promoted the gratifying achievements of "Chinatown Detective 2". During the release period, "Chinatown Detective 2" was recommended by industry critics and the famous stars. Writer and director Han Han even wrote a message that "I am very surprised to achieve such high quality in such a short filming time."

The preparations for "Chinatown Detective 2" lasted more than three months and 47 days of actual shooting, the filmmakers asked to release the film before New Year's Day, the time left for post-production was stretched. S51 has the privilege of working with other special effects teams to complete the intense special effects shots production, and try to present the most exciting pictures and more stunning viewing experience for the audience. One of them was the one in which the starring Wang Baoqiang took the spit in the car. The "Tang Triangle" drove into the police car and rubbed the tai chi spark. The real shot of this part took place in a green screen shed built in a parking lot. Before the start of production, the S51 artists communicated with the VFX lead Mr. Qiao, and made three-dimensional scene construction and background extension for the following buildings according to the production ideas determined by both parties. And before the shooting, the smoke generated by the friction between the paint and the wheel is made into an image of Tai Chi and Gossip. It is convenient for us to superimpose motion blur effects on Tai Chi smoke during post-production, making the speed look faster.

It is worth noting that when shooting, the rotation of the car in the "Tang Triangle" after the collision with the police car was carried out by adding props to the car. On the side shot, we lowered the car, and at the same time, the shadow formed on the ground and the reflection of the surrounding buildings on the window were adjusted accordingly. In another scene of "Streaking at Madison Avenue", due to the deposition of some rain on the ground during the shooting, in order to connect with the front lens, our Matte Painting artist worked with the synthesis department to repair the ground of the entire shot.

Netease Entertainment once commented: The continuous fermentation of the film's good reputation, the long-term development of the film, the field shooting in New York, the international lineup, and the perfect cooperation with the American trade unions, the film's international temperament is significantly more than the first one.

No matter from the shooting technique or the post-production effect, with the unremitting efforts of Chinese filmmakers, we will finally meet the moment when Chinese film and international are in harmony. S51 people are committed to providing Chinese film with special effects and creativity that are comparable to the international level. We are willing to do our best for the integration of Chinese film and international.
