Weak film with a few strong moments
2 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

New Killers In Town (aka New Kids In Town, aka Master Of Disaster; I saw it under the first title and, in response to the other comment, there were absolutely no Jackie Chan scenes in my version) is about as generic and unremarkable as kung fu movies get. The good guys inadvertently mess up the plans of the bad guys; the bad guys don't like it so they strike; and finally the (remaining) good guys strike back. There are a lot of references to the differences between living in the strict mainland China and the more prosperous Hong Kong of 1990, which will probably mean more to Chinese audiences. Not unusually for a HK film, the tone switches from lighthearted to nasty at a moment's notice. Moon Lee is in top form and even gets to do some wooden board-breaking, but she spends most of the second half captured by the bad guys. The one touch of creativity in this film comes at the end, when Liu Chia Liang, star and director of many "old-school" kung fu classics, has his one and only fight in the movie, and before it starts the score switches to traditional Chinese music.
