All the funny spies!
15 January 2015 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

Wo ai Ye Laixiang (All The Wrong Spies) is the sequel to Gui ma zhi duo xing (All The Wrong Clues), where in Hong Kong, Circa 1940s, World War II, private detective Yoyo (George Lam) and sometimes friend Inspector Teddy Robin (Teddy Robin Kwan) join a resistance group during the Japanese occupation. Their goal is to steal the formula to the atomic bomb from Commissioner Fat Chicken (Paul Chin) before it ends up in the Japanese emperor's hands.

While All The Wrong Clues was a mediocre, dreary and boring movie, this film is much more exciting with its thrilling World War II backdrop plot, colorful and humorous characters, and a catchy music score, with songs sung in the background by George Lam.

The cinematography by Johnny Koo was well done, capturing the essence and atmosphere of the 1940s and the direction by Teddy Robin Kwan was also well done, keeping the plot momentum going. His character in the movie, though, was annoying at times, always cocky, trying to impress the girls and hardly showing any rapport with George Lam. Lam, on the other hand, was spot-on as a somewhat clumsy but daring detective and his female counterpart, resistance leader Bridgit (Brigitte Lin), is a firebrand beauty with a skillful set of martial arts. From her dance sequence during the grand banquet to the action scenes in the hideout, she has a pretty nice screen presence. Too bad the chemistry between her and Lam weren't more serious.

The Japanese occupation was a sensitive and dark chapter in history, but this movie portrayed that in a courageous but lighthearted away. It's a fun-filled movie for those who enjoy Hong Kong cinema.

Grade B+
