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

One of Michael Hui's best
1 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

Not quite the masterwork that "Chicken and Duck Talk" is, "Hero of The Beggars" is still a very enjoyable comedy, with Michael Hui playing the "Mr. Boo" character to a hilt and Sandra Ng mugging furiously. The overall plot involves Hui, as the leader of a group of Mainlanders, trying to survive in Hong Kong. There are some very creative visual comedy sequences, and - surprisingly - some well done action sequences as well.

Until recently, this film was not available with English subtitles - the recent Universe DVD, however, corrects that - looks great, and even includes a trailer with some gag shots not seen in the movie itself.

I've seen almost all of Mr. Hui's films now, and this is one of the best.
