In the mythical land of Huadu, Charcoal Head, a humble boy born to rule an empire must undertake his journey to claim his throne. It is an epic action adventure combining romance, fantasy, comedy and cutting edge Hong Kong style martial artistry.
In this prequel to Mou gaan dou (2002), Chan Wing Yan has just become an undercover cop in the triads while Lau Kin Ming joins the police force. Both the triads and the police find an enemy in a rival crime boss.

In Hong Kong, a terrorist organization plans to blackmail the world's government with the help of two fatal diseases a goofy scientist created. Two Interpol agents went to stop their evil plot of world domination, but one of them became a victim of one of the diseases and wanders off acting like a six-year old child. He mindlessly walks into a bullied action film star's mansion, and the star, Jones Bon, was forced to babysit him while dealing with affairs involving his divorced wife and his two daughters. Only a short period of times has passed when Jones, although paying more attention to solving his family situations, finds himself fighting the terrorists. Written by
Spy Dad (2003) is one of the latest films to come from Hong Kong. Wong Jing writes, directs and produces this odd parody of Spy Kids, The Matrix, Austin Powers, Internal Affairs, X-Men, James Bond series and Enter the Dragon. Tony Leung Ka Fai stars as Jimmy Bon, an actor who's raising two teenage girls by himself while his wife (Candace Yu) lives in the U.S. They're both actors (They split up because of there careers and Jimmy's personality) and they're constantly
trying to get permanent custody of the two children). Elvis Tsui co-stars as the evil terrorist who wants to unleash Super S.A.R.S. upon the world. Eric Kot plays his goofy henchman. Teresa Mo appears as Bon's assistant. The problem with Jimmy Bon is that he's nothing like his screen alter-ego. He's spineless and is easily bullied by others until several circumstances forces him to change his ways.
Yes, Wong Jing has made another comedy. Unlike his more recent output of romantic comedies over the past year, this one is more of a return to his earlier works. He parodies several Hollywood productions as well as a couple of Hong Kong ones. Wong Jing is one of the few film-makers in Hong Kong that still produce films. Hopefully he wont fall victim to Hollywood's bankroll.
Great stuff, highly recommended!
