Hilariously funny Stephen Chow movie!
8 November 2014 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

Hong Kong funnyman Stephen Chow plays common thief Sing, who crosses paths with Hong Kong stock company employee Ling (Sibelle Hu), and end up joining her in helping an amnesia-plagued undercover cop to regain his memory and locate the whereabouts of the 50 million dollars cash used in a drug deal. In the meantime, they try to avoid becoming victims of the crime-lord that was responsible for embezzling 50 million dollars out of the stock company.

The plot is pretty simple but easy to follow, and their are very little surprises and twists to the story. However, you'll be entertained by the large amount of comedy, from Chow's witty humor to Hu's slapstick Karate moves. The unending gun fights and the protagonists trying to outrun the bad guys are also entertaining to watch.

The acting wasn't bad and the music score ranges from clownish to mysterious. There also are a few plot holes here and there. But, overall, it's a good old-fashion crime comedy that will give you several laughs.

Grade B
