Nice Historical Relic
21 July 2004 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

Rating a film nearly 70 years after it is made would seem like a fool's errand but I live in Hong Kong and was hoping a copy of this film would eventually surface, and it did. With nearly every cinematic cliché thrown into the mix, and a story loosely wrapped around illegal weapons and a bracelet with nine lives, it's great fun to watch even if the storyline is confusing. It doesn't matter. There are a few background scenes of old Hong Kong; the language they speak really isn't Chinese; there are almost no ethnic Chinese in the film; and the print quality is terrible. Again, it doesn't matter. It has its moments, and anyone aware of the few old films with Hong Kong themes would want to see this and compare them. Now if only Ronald Reagan's old Hong Kong film would come along ...
