Two friends - tough Hong-Kong police officers, end up in Laos prison camp. Will their friendship help them escape?
This is a very enjoyable movie for the fans of kung-fu flicks. While incredibly shallow, it contains some very funny situations and incredibly good fight scenes. The best part is the lack of wuxia-style super-heroes and super-villains. The ending is a bit anti-climatic, and the fodder baddies are totally inept. The boss of our two heroes, a senior police officer, is so hilarious. I was hoping to see him again before the movie ended, to no avail. But it's all redeemed by an amazing opening scene and the fights are the delight of this movie. As far as I can tell, there is no use of wires, everything is real. Everyone tries to use guns first, and only then resort to martial arts. There is a very funny borrowing from Rambo III flick. While attempting to escape prison, one of the heroes crafts a makeshift bow and arrows with dynamite "warheads". The traps in the jungle are fun as well.
