I got this movie after watching the great Shaolin Soccer. I wanted more of the same kind of entertainment. This movie was very disappointing. It seems to happen a lot with me in terms of Hong Kong movies; I run into a great one, then when I look into the other movies the star and/or director made, 90% of them suck.
The movie starts off getting me excited, with Stephen Chow in a prison. Then it goes to this other guy for the next ten or so minutes straight and RUINS the entire experience. Its the kind of movie you start watching leaning forward, but soon have your hand on your chin in boredom. This is about 1% of the entertainment value of Shaolin Soccer. This other guy, Nick something, has no talent and has no ability to entertain. I think he's pretty popular over in Asia, but outside the area and all the hype, where we just see him as an actor, it is easy to tell how much he sucks.
What's the matter with the script. It just cuts back and forth from random scene to random scene, and all of it is boring! If you want to make a random style movie, it can be extremely funny if done correctly. This was not. IT IS BORING. Why do many Asian films think they can do the same joke over and over for decades? Like the man running on the beach in slo-mo, Baywatch style. It was funny a million years ago when it was still new.
