A really fun cop comedy!
16 May 2015 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a funny cop comedy starring Lawrence Cheng as blundering Hong Kong police inspector Ma Yu Long, who goes undercover to investigate tycoon Teng Kuo Chiao (Damian Lau), suspected of bribing city planning officer Ma Yu Yu (Tony Leung Ka Fai) to build roads to suit his needs and thought to be responsible in Yu's death.

This movie has a steady-paced plot, but the investigation scenes involving Cheng and the hilariously romantic chemistry between him and love crush Julia (Rosamund Kwan) are acted out well and are sure to entertain people. You will see a smack of gun-totting action here and there, especially during the second half of the movie, and plenty of dry humor and comedic relief that doesn't rely heavily on the slapstick stuff.

While a bumbling police inspector, Ma Yu Long sure tries his best to be competent, and the little love triangle between him, Julia and his Shanghai-ese cousin Tam Lan Hing just bring on another layer of light-hearted comedy to captivate the audience. Even Hing getting a little too close for comfort in the ongoing investigation brings out some added suspense.

Overall, it's good stuff here and one of the best crime comedies I've seen.

Grade A
