Storyline

A police sting takes place in a haunted apartment building. The sting goes bad when a female ghost crashes the party. Lots of chase scenes involving floating heads and headless bodies.. and, oh yes.... toy helicopters. And then it gets weird...A band of Chinese elves save the day (one of them plays a mandolin).

Self-control.. What does that mean?
6 August 2007 | by (the Mad Hatter's tea party.) – See all my reviews

Four female cops go undercover as club hostesses for a sting to stop a counterfeiting operation, but their choice of a meeting spot happens to be a haunted apartment building. The landlady had a Buddhist priest to rid the place of ghosts and to seal up the door in her basement where the spirits come from, but unknowingly one manages escape from him and this causes trouble for those who happen to be the building.

What lunacy! Every single aspect of this Honk Kong film is simply bonkers, though very amusing in its originality. "Operation Pink Squad 2" is a sequel to the original film (which I haven't seen) of the same name. It's a strange, ultra-loony and lowbrow supernatural horror comedy of the incredibly extreme and kinetic. Its loud and no-barred humour mainly drowns out the horror side of things. The comic jokes are crass, absurd and more often sexually orientated. Slapstick routines feature largely. Surprisingly even though it's quite goofy and screwball with its sense of humour, nonetheless its pretty effective because the script is immensely funny and the gags are very well timed. The off-the-rocker story sets up many impulsive shifts that feed off the central premise and director Jeff Lau's wacky, hundred miles per hour style works admirably with the light-headed formula. There are few flashy and neatly executed choreographed scenes of surreal action, but it's the farcical interplay that wins out. Special effects and make-up come off potently cheap and tatty, but manage to hold tight because of their limitations, so they're well used and kept on a leash. Well, except for one special surprise involving a head. Actually make that two. The bouncy camera-work leaves a fast, atmospheric imprint and there was some prominent filtered lighting to convey a sullen, dreary ambiance to the building. The jolts are pretty frank and underused, but the suspense doesn't seem to register and Lau might want it that way. Helping out is that the performances are done with a mock serious approach. Sandra Ng, Ann Bridgewater, Suki Kwan and Cheung Man perfectly make up the four undercover cops. Yuen Cheung-yan is excellent as the monk. Billy Lau, Woo Fung and Fui-On Shing get the laughs from their broad, madcap characters.

A neatly-handled and suitably outrageous comical farce.
