Sammo Hung plays a trio in ghost comedy.
16 January 2016 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

In this Hong Kong ghost comedy, Sammo Hung plays three different characters: Fatty, Fatty's father and Fatty's grandfather, Hung Kau. Fatty is a hotel worker and yearns for easy money and becoming rich. Therefore, he and his friend, Hoi (Hoi Mang), try their luck gambling. When Fatty hits rock bottom, the ghost of his grandfather appears and decides to help him, but only if he helps his soul avenge his death.

The comedy is average at best, not much real laugh-out-loud moments, and the humor is pretty broad and general, nothing too memorable to remark about. The ghost + gambling + revenge angle was pretty intriguing in the film, though, and kept the plot a little well-paced from start to finish, but the elements do get drowned out sometimes in some of the broad humor.

In addition to the starring roles of Sammo Hung and Hoi Mang, there is is delightful co-starring role of Nina Li Chi as car-smuggling beauty Lily and James Wong as the one of the villains. There is also a wide range of well-known actors in the movie such as Richard Ng, Stanley Fung, Corey Yuen, Paul Chun, Lam Ching-Ying and Wu Ma. However, most were just, unfortunately, cameo appearances.

The martial arts of the film doesn't come until late in the movie; however, it's not a bad tour-de-force and has some cool Kung-Fu moments.

It's not a bad movie, could have used more comedy and ghost horror, but it's serviceable enough to entertain people.

Grade B-
