This movie's fun...Chiu Man Cheuk plays a security expert from China who came down to Hong Kong for a visit. In the course of his journey, he met up with Anthony Wong who plays a frustrated ex-army man. Chiu Man Cheuk gets to show off his amazing agility in the opening sequence and later on board the ferry...and towards the end. Chiu's nephew happened to attend the same school as Anthony's son...whom his ex-wife, now married to another man, wanted the take away to the US. The angry ex-army man, together with some colleagues took over the school and demanded the returne of his son. Our hero, Chiu got into the picture as he wanted to save his nephew. He promised to bring Anthony's son back to him...within the day. Along the way, he met a feisty reporter (whom his auntie was going to matchmake him to) and a nutty driver (Anthony's brother-in-law...played by Sam Lee).
The plot is easy to follow and Chiu gets to display his humourous side...apart from his considerable wushu talent! It's worth a watch so get it!
