King Kong (Samuel Hui), while vacationing in Paris, is kidnapped by a British agent called James (Jean Mersant), who wants to recover one of the stolen crown jewels, the Star of Fortune, supposedly at the request of the Queen of England. The jewel is hidden at the Hong Kong Police Headquarters and Kong will have to steal the jewel without his partner-in-crime, Detective Albert "Baldy" Au (Karl Maka), knowing. When James' devious intentions are later revealed and Baldy and his wife, Supt. Nancy Ho (Sylvia Chang) discovered Kong's heist, Kong finds himself at a crossroad. Written by
In this third outing of the series, King Kong is hired by some people who say they work for the Queen of England. They claim that some jewelry from the crown has been stolen, and they want King Kong to steal it back. But things are not quite what they seem, and King Kong and Baldy are in trouble again.
Compared to the first two movies in the series this is the worst, it's not quite as action-packed as the others, but relies more on humour, which gets kind of stupid after a while. Maka, who plays Baldy, sets new records in overacting, and the Bond-inspired characters are quite lame.
Skip this one, and proceed directly to the next, which is better (Ringo Lam is the king).
