A madcap romp, fun in places
4 October 2001 | by (Isle of Man, British Isles) – See all my reviews

I gave this a try because it stars Maggie Cheung, one of my favourite Chinese actresses. An early role for the near Miss Hong Kong, she's obviously having fun in a film that unfortunately can only be described as a ‘madcap romp'.

There's a bomb hidden inside a soft drink can, and a pair of Japanese terrorists (Eddie Ko and the wonderfully monikered Elvis Tsui) are trying to find it. They suspect three oddball characters know the bomb's location and try to track them down. The consequences are possibly hilarious if you know Chinese, but with only the non-remastered subtitles I presume a lot is lost in translation.

Still, it's fun in places. Cheung's bubbly charisma counts for a lot, almost making up for her two underperforming co-stars (Lam and Sham, both of whom are completely forgettable).
