Okay but forgettable movie.
12 August 2003 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie has undercover cop Stephen Chow trying to catch the bad guy by joining his gang. It's ultimately a forgettable movie. It's nice while you watch it - there are a few jokes that are pure Stephen Chow - but those are the only parts worth remembering.

The typical relationship fights and friendships are inevitable, so that takes away some of the fun. You're waiting for these two people to argue or these two people to become friends, so that that the movie can move on to other things. Otherwise the movie moves along nicely.

It's not as funny or as entertaining as many of his other movies but it's still enjoyable. There's more drama in this movie than many of his other movies, so if you see this be aware of that fact. Relationships are strong in here, as are loyalty and the other usual cop/triad values. Nice watch, but I'd say only if you're a Stephen Chow fan (or a HUGE Danny Lee fan).
