The Intellectual Trio - nothing clever about it really...
I'm in the process of watching all the Cheung films at the moment, but this one is not one to spend your time with unless you are his diehard fan, or just want to see some amusing 80's Hong Kong fashion.
The storyline involves some not particularly attractive women who go around pickpocketing, then come unstuck when they choose a professional (look at the 80's style fashion, man!!!) assassin and then become his next targets. Simultaneously the women try to pickpocket Cheung, a not very tough and convincing policeman, and a supposed Taiwanese sidekick, who tries to be funny, but is NOT in the slightest. The women then end up falling for Cheung's charms, and can also utilize his policeman status to fend off the assassin stalker. In the end it's supposed one of the women gets her throat cut by the assassin, but even that's unclear, cus at the next scene, the sister goes around to the appartment and on a call to the assassin asks where her sister is. About the scariest scene if at all that, was when the assassin appears in the shower of the Taiwanese side kick.
Give it a miss.
