Gentle comedy and hard-hitting action seamlessly melded
If you like action movies, this film is for you. If you like gentle comedy, this film is also for you. If you've only seen Chow Yun-Fat playing suave, "hard boiled" killers this film is *definitely* one you should see. Breathtaking action sequences pepper a sweet plot about the triumph of innocence over arrogance and the power of love and friendship.
Plus you get to see Chow Yun-Fat walking around with Mickey Mouse balloons.
5 stars out of 5. One of my favorite HK comedies.
