Crazy money movie!
28 April 2015 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This is one of the few Hong Kong movies I've seen that were made in the 1970s, a story about swindlers Dragon (Richard Ng) and Poison (Ricky Hui) team up to try to steal a set of diamonds from the wealthy and shady Rich Chan (Ying Cheung).

The movie is filled with slapstick action and dry humor, coupled with some fast action scenes and a high-momentum plot. The acting is quite good; Ng and Hui make a dynamic duo and Angie Chiu made a pretty good female lead. There isn't much to the background of the characters, though, and the development and redeeming qualities are few.

Scenes with Ng hanging upside from the ceiling as he attempts to steal the diamond from Chan, a henchman getting bronzed and the servant lady opening a can of worms are some of the scenes I remembered the most. Oddly enough, they're pretty nostalgic since I first saw this movie when I was a kid.

It's a pretty funny movie - go check it out!

Grade B-
