Surprisingly fun and funny buddy cop film, albeit a slap-happy bloody mess.
21 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Absent of a progressive plot and decent soundtrack, Curry & Pepper still manages to shine with the good performances from Stephen Chow and Jacky Cheung. This dysfunctional pair of cops land themselves on the hit list of one mean triad killer, although meanwhile all they seem to care about is getting the ladies. Their misadventures on the street eventually provoke a confrontation with the baddest of the bad villain, and a shootout ensues which is both laughable and dazzling to watch. This Heroic Bloodshed flick respectably pokes fun at the genre, somehow out-showing an already over-the-top series of crime comedies from the era. The villain here is just too bad-ass, he's a bad-ass for the sake of being bad-ass. The movie is well aware of this, among parodying other typical elements, which personally was one of the reasons it was so charming. The Chinese comedy is silly with endless sexual innuendo, but it really works between the oddball pair. If your checking this out because your a fan of Stephen Chow, or Heroic Bloodshed in general, definitely give it a watch. - 7/10
