A Great Movie
21 November 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent movie. The previous reviewer, though i respect his opinion is unaware that this movie is the equivalent to Scary movie series. It takes the mick out of other Chinese movies made in hong Kong. If you do not watch other Chinese movies, specially the action and drama ones, you will not understand this movie at all. if u really want to appreciate this work, watch God of Gamblers (made in 1989) and some Bruce Lee movies. u will start liking this movie. god of Gamblers is a great movie on its on, Chun Yau Fat is in it (worked in Crouching tiger hidden dragon). Stephen chow is a great actor and all his movies (with the exception of King of Comedy) are amazing.
