Storyline

King Kong (Samuel Hui) and Albert "Baldy" Au (Karl Maka) were framed for robbery by brother and sister thieves (Leslie Cheung and Nina Li Chi), taking possession of a magnificent sword from antiquities smugglers. The smugglers attempt to hunt down Kong and Baldy, just as they were being pursued by the Hong Kong Police for their supposed "crime." Kong and Baldy managed to reprimand the brother/sister duo, but were all ultimately apprehended by the authorities and sent to a prison in China, putting their innocence and freedom in jeopardy.

My favourite of the Aces Go Places series.
17 July 2008 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

When The Aces latest job turns sour, partners Baldy (Karl Maka) and King Kong (Sam Hui) decide to go their separate ways; however, they are reunited three years later after a brother and sister crime duo, The New Aces (played by the late, great Leslie Cheung and beautiful Nina Li) frame them for the theft of China's national treasures, the Terracotta Army and a valuable sword.

With both the Chinese authorities (led by Conan Lee's Chinese Rambo) and a gang of criminals hot on their trail, the guys are forced to work together once again in order to prove their innocence.

Directed by martial arts movie legend Lau Kar-Leung, The Terracotta Hit is without a doubt my favourite of the Aces Go Places movies; there is still plenty of the series' trademark silliness (including a gwailo villain who wears a white pussycat glove puppet!), but this one also offers much more in the way of kung fu action than previous efforts, with the entertaining fight scenes utilising a nice range of traditional weaponry.

After plenty of daft stunts (my favourite being Nina Li's disastrous human-cannon escape plan), and lots of general looniness, the film ends with a satisfyingly furious fight amidst the Terracotta Army, which features baddies disguised as statues and absolutely loads of very painful looking falls for the film's HK stunt-men.

6.5 out of 10, rounded up to 7 for IMDb.
