Somewhat silly, but highly entertaining
1 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

Flying Dagger (1993 - not to be confused with the recent House of Flying Daggers) is a typical Hong Kong crowd-pleaser of a low-brow comedy. Yes, there are bits of toilet humor, but considering the effective entertainment value of the movie as a whole, I can look past that. It is a fun, good-natured high-speed kung fu romp, and there's literally never a dull moment. People are flying all over the place, doing battle physically and verbally, fighting outrageous villains (like "Die First", who dies first, "Die Hard", who dies after a long fight, and "Never Die", who... well, you get the idea!) and just generally cavorting. I watched this movie in the middle of the night, needing some fast-paced happy-go-lucky action to keep me awake, and you can bet this movie did the trick!

The story? Let me see - a male hero team of two meets a female hero team of two (gradually, of course, falling in love with each other), and team up to fight a husband-wife team of good-natured thieves (who live in a kind of Bat-cave), but all of them clear up the misunderstanding and join forces to fight some relatively undefined bad guys in the end (also joined by an autonomous helping hand - namely the severed one of "Never Die"!). The story is there, but it really isn't terribly important. But it's great fun. A high-spirited comedy with a great cast, well worth your time.

The female hero team - sisters, actually - consists of two of my favorite Asian actresses, the beautiful and exotic Man Cheung, and the cute and cuddly Gloria Yip. They both demonstrate a great aptitude for comedy here, and might have carried the entire movie on their own. But they are actually out-shone by the wacky husband-wife team, who consists of Nine-Tailed Fox, played by Jacky Cheung, and Flying Cat, played by Maggie Cheung (and no, none of all these Cheungs are related). They are both absolutely great. This is actually the first time I've seen Jacky Cheung, and I was struck by how much he resembles Jackie Chan. Still, he's a good actor and kung fu fighter in his own right.

8 out of 10.
