Daggers and Bewitchment vs Fox & Cat
17 April 2010 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

Kevin Chu's martial arts comedy fantasy is a silly comedy but one that is highly entertaining. It's not the best of its genre as some of the humour is a little too over the top for my liking and there are several plot holes and the story itself lacks direction. The fight scenes, although clichéd, are fun to watch even though the 'gliding in the sky' gets tiring at some point. 'Shen Jing Dao Yu Fei Tian Mao' also doesn't stand out in the technical department. The sound effect is terrible, the cinematography is flat and the special effects are bad. The movie has a campy feel to it. It is the humour that stands out for the most part. There's plenty of toilet humour, nonsensical situations and slapstick. Jacky Cheung and Maggie Cheung are splendidly hilarious. Jacky is already well known for his comic flair and it's nice to see that Maggie can pull off comedy with ease. The rest of the cast are adequate. Overall, 'Shen Jing Dao Yu Fei Tian Mao' isn't among the best examples of Hong Kong's action comedy fantasies but it's a funny little film that has some laugh-out-loud moments.
