This Sammo Hung action-comedy is often cited as his most politically incorrect film, along with the more recent flick 'Don't Give a Damn'. This is a fair assessment, although this minor classic of Hong Kong cinema should not be dismissed for this reason.
The story involves the search for a serial killer of gay men; crude and often amusing jokes come thick and fast as Hung and cop partner Alan Tam go undercover as homosexuals. Thankfully, the movie never truly degenerates into homophobia, and remains fairly agreeable throughout.
The fight scenes, as choreographed by Sammo himself, are mostly on the short side but masterfully performed and extremely powerful. However, the violence in the film is graphic and occasionally shocking- so be warned.
Overall, if you can stomach the heady mix of controversial comedy and hard-hitting action, you'll have a rollicking time.
