Storyline

A band of four robbers can steal from a powerful crime syndicate as efficiently as they can rob a jewelry store. But the syndicate doesn't want revenge: it wants these four guys on their side. That way, the syndicate will be invincible. Three of the four robbers think crime is easy; but their leader, Ma Yi, is more level-headed. Before their adventures are over, the robbers will find themselves traveling from Hong Kong to Thailand; enduring the wrath of the double-crossing syndicate; and suffering the brutality of the police. Meanwhile, Ma Yi must keep the others from gambling away all their stolen loot. But his principles, and his loyalty to his brothers in crime, are more important than the ill-gotten gains.

Below-Standard Hong Kong Action Movie - Great Dubbing
1 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The plot concerns four criminals from mainland China who go to Hong Kong to make their fortune. Just because I used the word plot shouldn't lead you to think that it makes any sense. It doesn't. The main point of this movie is the tight relationship of the four robbers. The humorless leader is always going on about his principles while he's shooting and stealing. But the real stars of this movie are the people who did the dubbing. I guess they were bored or drunk or something because they do some hilarious voices. There is a character named Dragon that gets a Dean Martin-like voice. And the Thai policeman who is put in charge of the investigation is given a deep, weird voice. There are several minor characters that have unusual and funny voices also. This the only reason to watch this movie but it's enough. This movie is available as part of the Mill Creek Entertainment Martial Arts 50 Movie Pack.
