This a lesser seen Cat111 film from Hong Kong and starring Anthony Wong, of course. He is not the baddie in this but the father of a family that gets into trouble because of a bad investment, gambling and loans that get bigger instead of smaller as they are repaid. Rather more sexual violence in this than gore and many an uncomfortable scene. Children in peril, once more, much crying, screaming, hitting and running around. Also, again not unusually, totalling inappropriate humour whilst everyone overacts and grimaces like crazy. Just like crazy, actually. Not unlikeable for all that but this is not for the casual viewer. There isn't another country in the world that produced films quite like this up to the time of the handover. Good job too, some would say but for all the lack of sophistication, there is a level on which these pretty despicable and almost childish films can work a certain magic like no others. PC this is not!
