A Decent Spy Spoof
15 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the story of Yoyo (George Lam), who is hired to be the go between of a Jewish scientist an an American who is going to have the secret to the atomic bomb during World War 2. This is a silly film, all over the map. Its kind of like the Leslie Nielsen spoofs that proliferated the movie screens for years. That is not necessarily a bad thing however, and the inclusion of the beautiful Brigitte Lin is very welcome. She is probably the best thing about this film, as she makes you take notice, and not only for her beauty. A nonsense 90 minutes plus film, its a somewhat fun way to pass the time. You're not expecting profundity and you're not going to get it. It aims low ans succeeds. If you like spoof films, go ahead and try it.
