Storyline

Is anyone who he says he is in this caper that moves from Hong Kong and Las Vegas to Tokyo? Ken doesn't show up in Vegas for his wedding; his disconsolate bride, Macy, heads home for Hong Kong and finds John, an interior decorator, waiving a check of Ken's that has bounced. She leaves immediately for Tokyo to find her businessman boyfriend, and John tags along. Ken's flat is teeming with members of the Ito gang, who are also looking for Ken. John and Macy escape, with the help of a crew of look-alike cuties who work for Lin, who claims to be a private investigator. He too is looking for Ken. Where is Ken, why has he disappeared, and who will find him first? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

An interesting international action movie
26 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not a bad action flick by director Jingle Ma, and actor Tony Lueng Chiu Wai.

It's an international affair when the groom runs away to Japan, and his bride come after him from Hong Kong. Not only is he a run away groom, he had many underworld connection, that has gangs and yakuzas hot on his trail. All converge in Tokyo and mayhem ensues.

The visuals (on DVD) is very good, and although the story was bit silly, it had enough impact to be entertaining. If there was one thing I didn't like was Kelly Chan's acting. She always appears wooden and fails to bring the voltage up on the story. They've also failed to cash in on the talent of Japanese actors, and couldn't make a good story around them. Hiroshi Abe should have been the lead role on the Japanese side, and should have been pit against Tony Lueng Chiu Wai. Then the story and the movie would have been 200% better.

So it's a movie that needs little more work, and some change in the actors, but overall it was an acceptable action drama.
