The Red Army will stop at nothing to assassinate the Daka Lama during his visit to Singapore on Nation Day. En route, he meets Ling May, a young woman who shares his horoscope; he tells her that they face a day of danger, and she scoffs at him. In the Singapore airport, both are seriously wounded by terrorists. They have a rare blood type, so if the Red Army can keep blood donors from the hospital, both the monk and Ling will die. The police and Hong Kong anti-terrorist Lui Tai have one hope: to get a cowardly con man to the hospital to give blood before it's too late. The wild card is Ling's hotheaded boy friend, who fears the doctors will ignore her: he kidnaps the blood donor. Written by
Last Blood (1990) was a funny flick by Wong Jing. The Daka Lama is severely wounded while making a goodwill trip to Singapore. A triad's girlfriend is also wounded when a group of Japanese Assassins try to kill the Lama. The two share a rare blood type and only five people in Singapore have it. But three are dead and one is on holiday. The fate of Asia lies in the body of Fatty who's being chased by two cops, the vacationing triad and a horde of terrorists. The film winds up in a crackerjack finale. Wong Jing throws in everything including the kitchen sink in this low budgeted action film.
One scene to watch for is the man in a wheelchair during the Hospital invasion. It's a real hoot. Film stars Alan Tam, Andy Lau and Eric Tsang who's also the Producer. Wong Jing is a hired gun on the film but he brings his usual stamp on to the screen. Blackie Ko is the Action Director. This is sometimes called Hardboiled 2, but this came out almost two years before that one and is just as entertaining.
