Charlie Chaplin and the Keystone Cops visit China
12 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

Stolen Nazi atomic bomb secrets are in hot demand. Meant to be delivered to an American spy, they end up with a Chinese collaborator who intends to give them to the Japanese. A private detective (George Lam) is hired to insure delivery to the American. Brigitte Lin is his ex-girlfriend who is now with the collaborator.

Comedy is what comedy does and this movie didn't do it for me. The film is pure corn and slapstick all the way through. My partner laughed continuously while it was all I could do to stay awake. Don't remember seeing anything original, as the gags seemed to be copied or reworked from earlier movies. An example is when Lam, hired to pass along atomic secrets, stops to pour a glass of milk. He spends a minute (seemed like an eternity) pouring from a large full pitcher into a small glass, only to end up with an empty glass.

On the positive side this movie has Brigitte Lin. I found myself paying much more attention after she appeared wearing a black form fitting outfit. A welcome addition and with a different leading actor this could have been a much better movie. She dominated each scene she appeared in......especially the ones where she used a whip.

This movie may not be for everyone, but you can't go wrong if you enjoy a heavy mix of silliness with your comedy. Also, this movie is a must for Brigitte Lin fans. Besides being a joy to watch, she seemed to be having tremendous fun cutting loose. I've never seen her laugh or smile so much in a movie.
