A Truly Hong Kong creation. A Police Soap opera that blends comedy, action and melodrama to very likable affect. It's virtually plot less, but this works in favour of the film. We get to know the character surprisingly well, as they go through their changes that everyone can relate too.

And while not entirely realistic, there is a certain charm and poignancy to the simplistic scenes. Patrick Leung is no auteur, but his lack of pretension serves the likable script well.

The cop soap opera genre has since pretty much dried up, with the exception of Crazy in the City.. But it's worth checking this out. If you have to see one, make it this.

A shame that Patrick Leung has gone overly commercial since.. Oh well, it's a gem either way
