IMHO stephen chow was on his A game when he put this film out. sure it may not have the amazing high production effects of films like Shaolin Soccer or Kung Fu Hustle, but Tricky Master is a great tongue in cheek presentation on popular Asian cinema. the parodies of Ringu and A man called Hero are great examples of the combination of 'in' jokes and also aesthetic humor. humor is not all about spectacle, as 'Hustle' leads you to believe. 'Tricky Master' tips its hand towards more script-oriented jokes and a lovable storyline which follows an amazing comedy duo. the best piece of his (Jing's) thus far.
the film really kicks into high gear at the get go when it lets you into the prison environment and gets you up to speed with Chow. and as lovable as he is, you almost forget that the movie has to come back to him as it follows the lead through his problematic life. there are very entertaining montages, great spoofs, and above all - amazing physical comedy.
