This movie on DVD looks like an old VHS tape with the white English subtitles that you can't remove. Of course everyone in the movie wears white and the subs are on their white clothes so you can't read half of them. A thousand years in the past an old bearded giant white eyebrows guy is doing battle with a witch with a V on her forehead. He is aided by two "fairies" (women not guys who like Kathy Griffin) who capture a "bead" or glowing fx ball. We are suddenly in 1990 and join the side splitting Captain Mambo HK police something or other and his crew of mugging goofballs. While they are supposed to be investigating headless corpses, Mambo meets one of the "fairies" who is being chased by the witch/demoness for the "bead". Most of the film is Mambo being "cute" with the "fairy" which I guess is romantic in HK. I thought the funniest part was a guy going on for five minutes about shoes and how they don't have laces anymore and you can wear sandals or boots while Asians who are as bad dancers as one can imagine get down all around them. Anyway Mambo finds out he has the second and critical "bead" and puts a gun to his right temple and pulls the trigger. Now the "fairy" gets the "bead" and kisses Mambo (the hole in his head is on the left side now) and brings him back to life but fades away as he keeps saying "Come back!" There is very little kung fu in this film. A lot of traveling around HK and being cutely romantic and a little "magic" of flying and ray beams and such. There's a whole lot of very dumb humor. I compare this like Chinese food. There's Chinese food in a restaurant and then there's Chinese food in a can you get in a supermarket. This movie is like that.
