Gotta Love the Flying Cards!!
5 October 2002 | by (Santa Barbara, CA) – See all my reviews

This wasn't a great movie, and maybe not even quite good. But yet, I was highly entertained throughout. For me, I'm figuring out that quite often, it's not the plot that makes an entertaining Hong Kong movie, but the interesting characters and their interactions getting to the plot that keep me entertained. I'm not knocking Hong Kong movies, as there are plenty of high quality ones with good The Killer or Beijing Bicycle that I think are excellent movies. But the Hong Kong movie movie industry seems to be able to crank out lots of lesser movies, that are just good fun to sit around with your friends and watch. This movie had some good elements. I'm a big fan of cards, poker, the card playing scenes, as well as the dice scene, were my favorites. I'm going to have to practice up my "Flying Cards" before my next game with my poker buddies. It also had a few good kung fu scenes, where one of the characters exclaim that "Jackie Chan isn't the only one in Hong Kong that knows Kung Fu". Also, the subtitles weren't the best which also provided for some unintentional humor. Just simple fun. I'd also be remiss if I didn't mention that it had some serious scenes as well, but for me, they were just pauses between the action in this movie.

**1/2 (Out of 4)
