Fun Adventure with an All-Star Cast!
24 September 2013 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a Hong Kong film which features an All-Star Cast - Andy Wah, Sammo Hung, Alan Tam, Anita Mui, Pak-Cheung Chan, Kent Cheng, and Gordon Liu just to name a few. Our protagonists are prisoners of war during the Japanese occupation in World War II and they aim to find a man with the pass-code to a Swiss bank account, containing a large sum of money that they could use to fight in the war. Their mission has to be met before the villains get their hands on the pass-code and before they exterminate the entire concentration camp.

They are plenty of kung-fu action adding to the excitement of the fast-paced plot, with dark humor mixed in with the intriguing story - all in a race against time, making you eager to know what takes place yet. The only downfall is that the film lacks the aftermath elements and consequences of the Japanese occupation which, I think, could have added drama in the picture. Other than that, an adventure-comedy you would have to see.

Grade A-
