This movie was produced by Andrew Lau after the successful Infernal Affair he had made. I don't get it, Why is Gordan Chan picking up bad script to direct? (this and the medallion). With impressive star like Andy Lau, who play Swordman Zhan a bodyguard and inspector of Judge Bao (his character was in a lot of series and is a real life judge blown to proportion) who is play by Anthony Wong. The story goes, when there was no crime in Judge Bao territory for 3 month, Zhan was given a vacation. Upon to his destination, he heard that the Kind father in law want to get rid of Judge Bao. He also met Shining Mouse (play by Cecilia Cheung) who pretends to be a man and they become friends at first. Anyway, Zhan inform Judge Bao and thus they immediate went to the king (who play hilariously by Cheung Tat Ming) to tell them to the King.
This Lunar New Year fluff was suppose to be fun, entertaining and funny, well this movie wasn't funny at all. There were probably 2 scenes that I had good laugh while most of them are stupid. I can also see some Wong Jing wackiness in this movie which was totally unnecessary. The main plot might seen interesting, but really this movie was boring and how they solve the case was mighty stupid. The dialogue was extremely shallow which add to the boringness. The acting was actually not bad, Andy Lau was charming and Cecilia Cheung acted an amazing role where she a strong woman but can't get over with her love to Andy Lau. Judge Bao was extremely dumb and wasted in this movie. The fight scene was totally unrealistic, and there was never a moment where you were surprise by the movie.
Let hope we can all forget about this movie and move on..
