This dark comedy starring the phenomenal Sammo Hung and hilarious Alan Tam as two cops, undercover as gay men to catch a killer, is packed with a severe mix of killer fights, crazy stunts, daft comedy and serious drama.
As a fan of HK cinema for over 30 years, this to me is quite normal. But if you are new to the genre, then be warned.
That said, it is one of Sammo's best and should have hit the UK on DVD a long time ago!
The fight scenes are just brutal, with the speed and power we all expect from a Sammo Hung film. Alan Tam is just hilarious and holds his own in the action department, with the end fight scene worth the price of the film alone!!
One of the best from Hong Kong's golden age, and should be seen by all fans...
