Unfortunate that this routine HK gangsters & gags piece re-surfaces because of the Wong Ka Wai connection when so many major films from the colonial industry have been ignored.

The coloured gel lit Hong Kong club scene is quite vivid but comedy is totally unfunny and at odds with the serious elements.
This one is an odd glimpse of major talents in their early years, of little interest to the English speaking market so often unfamiliar with their important films.
