Storyline

Ah-fei and Dragon, students under the brother kung-fu masters Shorty and Uncle, are sent to clear the ghosts out of a haunted house. After a brief search, they soon find that the "ghosts" are nothing but props set up by a couple of con artists. After making quick work of the cheats, the fighting pair discover that there is actually a real ghost hiding in the house! Ah-fei and Dragon may have studied their martial arts well, but how do you beat up something that's already dead? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

pretty bad
6 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

the existing video of this is ugly looking to begin with. but that sort of thing i can tolerate.

what i can't tolerate is a story that has no coherence and doesn't actually go anywhere; pathetically childish humor - it's all canton-comedy sight gags - a few, brief fight scenes masquerading as kung-fu, characters we'd rather not meet, let alone spend 90 minutes watching, and just shoddy production values overall.

Wilson tong has made some good films, but this isn't one of them.

the only importance of this film is historical - although the 'new wave' of hong kong action films had to find its identity, this film is clearly no longer a part of the old-school chop-socky 'fu film era of the seventies. in many ways, one can read the intended humor of this film as a kind of vomiting up of, and on, the old-school values.

but i find this offensive and misguided. martial arts humor is like any other kind of humor - it can be either light-hearted or fierce, but in the first instance, it must entertain.

this film doesn't.
