A light-hearted crime comedy from Hong Kong!
12 December 2014 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a crime comedy from Hong Kong, where a crooked cop designs a bomb concealed in a soda can and sells the idea to two Japanese gangsters. However, the plan goes awry as an associate steals the bomb and manages to hide it before the gangsters discover him. The incident, afterward, brought together three witnesses mixed into the plot: a suave rock scientist, a wisecracking taxi driver and an overzealous biker, who must team up to locate the missing soda can while trying to avert the pursuing criminals.

There isn't too much action or suspense in this film, but it is full of comic relief - some dry humor, some slapstick - that kept the story interesting and fun. Even though this movie has more of a comedic element than a suspenseful criminal one, the main plot of trying to locating the missing soda can and avert the gangsters' sinister plot is still evident and easy to follow.

The heroic trio of George Lam, John Sham and Maggie Cheung provided some great laughs and entertainment; their chemistry together were a treat to watch, with the overzealous Cheung constantly trying to prevent the calm George Lam and the rambling John Sham from butting heads - all the while trying to outsmart the pursuing crooks. Eddy Ko and Elvis Tsui make a formidable terrorist duo and Paul Chun is funny as the frustrated sergeant trying to put the pieces of the crime together.

This is one of those films I would watch over and over since my childhood and it still serves well over time. With a light Christmas theme in the movie, this is a nice one to watch during the holidays; always great seeing John Sham trying to escape the criminal while climbing a 10-foot tall Christmas tree! Overall, an enjoyable, light-hearted movie.
