Silly but tons o'fun
10 April 2006 | by (Eureka, CA) – See all my reviews

Spectacular if ultimately silly and fairly incoherent (in its USA version, at least) action fest from HK – a gang of specialty assassins (gunplay, martial arts, swordplay, computer hacking, etc) are hired by the Black Panther to steal a box from a police evidence locker, with a variety of nefarious and back-story motives being eventually revealed. A barrage of atrociously silly, mostly sexual, humor diminishes the narrative focus, but the film has some gorgeously staged sets and action sequences. Brigitte Lin, of course, shines as one of the gang who has romantic ties to the BP; she continually shows up in new costumes and hair styles which are quite provocative. Simon Yam, Tony Leung, Ming Chen-Chen, and Wah Yuen (predating his terrific role in KUNG FU HUSTLE and KUNG FU MAHJONG) are quite good despite much of the script's puerility. Unfortunately the Tai Seng DVD version is ruined by sloppy subtitles, which show up about 2 seconds late making it tough to figure out who's saying what in some of the dialog scenes, and bad editing jumps. But the film's coolness remains intensive, and even its impossible action scenes (incredibly fast swordplay, flying, dazzling gunplay, martial arts, etc) are potently mesmerizing and lots of fun.
