Moderately amusing comedy, but a waste of Kara Hui
9 September 2008 | by See all my reviews

Richard Ng and John Sham play two bumbling Hong Kong policemen who nevertheless get their job done, in their own unorthodox ways. When their former superior officer has some money and court evidence he was responsible for stolen from him, our cops decide to help him find out who did it. Things get complicated when Sham falls for the daughter of their prime suspect, a stuntwoman (Kara Hui).

I have to admit right away that I have never seen another "Pom Pom" film so far (apparently, there are quite a few of them). My main reason for checking this one out was the presence of Kara Hui. Sadly, her undeniable action skills are wasted in this film. She does look absolutely LOVELY, but her role could have been filled by many other lovely Hong Kong actresses (there's certainly no shortage of them!). Unlike the "Lucky Stars" films (in which both leads participated), "Return Of Pom Pom" is almost exclusively a comedy and has next to no action. If you can live with that, and with the relative waste of Kara Hui, the comedy is moderately amusing, and there are even some laugh-out-loud parts. (**1/2)
