Tony Leung has come a long way, hasn't he?
28 December 2005 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

I'll still pass the movie, maybe because I'm a TLCW fan, but honestly, the pairing of Ng Man Tat and Tony Leung wasn't a great pairing. Waise Lee does a good job as the inspector who is actually corrupt, and Ng Man Tat does what he always does best, comedy.

Tony Leung's character might have been better played by Stephen Chow, because honestly, the antics just screamed Stephen Chow, but the point where he romanced Wu Chien-Lien, he sort of came into his own. However the characters were still very one-dimensional, and the story-line, while it had a good theme going, fell flat after a while.

Watch the show if you want to understand why I prefer a Stephen Chow-NG Man Tat pairing.
