English title is Hong Kong Night Club - good action comedy
30 April 2006 | by (Dallas, Texas) – See all my reviews

This is an unusual Japan/Hong Kong collaboration. Japanese director Tayayoshi Watanabe creates a great action comedy much funnier and with better action and music track than most Hong Kong films instead of typical HK slapstick. Hong Kong Night Club is more like a decent Japan or American action comedy. Also there is a gay interest story mixed into a hetero romantic triangle. The story involves two investigative Japanese reporters who arrive just before the 1997 Hong Kong hand-over to China. They are investigating Triad involvement in the new, soon to be China owned Hong Kong. Since the triads are so prevalent, they end up getting more involved than they wanted, and are running for their lives from the gangsters who do not want to be reported about. This is a very entertaining movie, and not just the usual fare. Since the two lead roles are Japanese, most of the dialog is in Japanese, with a lot of Cantonese spoken by the other Hong Kong actors.
