Storyline

A Chinese General and his four troops, almost void in money, journey to the City of Guangzhou in attempts to earn enough cash from selling turtles to build the largest horse racetrack in China. However, when one of the troopers joins a gang leader to gain sudden wealth, the general and the remaining troops attempt to compete for their own wealth by entering Hong Kong to work for a businessman who pays under the table. While in Hong Kong illegally, the soldiers must find a way to bring themselves out of the shadows and find enough money to fulfill their dreams of building the racetrack. Written by Oliver Chu

Definitely among Michael Hui's best
15 August 2005 | by (LA, USA) – See all my reviews

First of all, don't be fooled by the low score (5.7) on IMDb (not enough users vote on it anyway), it's not a good indication how good this movie is.

I totally agree with the previous poster that this movie is one of Michael Hui's best films! And I have seen most of Michael Hui's movies to make such a bold comment! As a matter of fact I liked it even better than his other classics such as "The Private Eyes", "Security Unlimited", etc. I'd probably rated it as my 2nd favorite Michael Hui's movie closely behind the great "Chicken and Duck Talk". That tells you how much I love this movie! Highly recommended movie if you love Michael Hui's humor style.
