It made me smile...
1 December 1999 | by (London, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

I can't say this was a GREAT film, but I have a lot of affection for this buddy picture. The two leads are charming. They play small-time bumbling con-artists who are trying to make it big in the world of the Triads. Its funny and even...(I cant believe I'm saying this) heart-warming. And there is a big action packed gun-fu finale. What's not to like?
