Funny in a weird way film
3 June 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

By far the best 2004 Hk film i had seen so far...

Plot: At the beginning the relationship between Charlene Choi and Tony Leung Ka Fai was not that good. She thinks her dad is a weak sissy person and she want to live the wild live (stealing partying etc. Tony Leung, a single father, is a piano instruction who trying to coup with her daughter changes. Well some of Charlene Choi school mate, want to join a gang so they don't get bully up most of the time. They mistakenly think Tony Leung is the Shadowless Eagle, and after that some triads are after Charlene Choi because she gone in a lot of trouble.

The movie was very funny with a lot of great famous supporting roles, especially the rival triad leader. Tony Leung is a great comedian, and in his role he did a fine job. Charlene Choi yet another role playing a lousy mouth, get in trouble teenager. The movie contain a brilliant storyline, how Tony Leung deals with the different triads boss was gold and i really like the Eric Tsang speech about triads. This movie didn't really exceed in the daughter-father relationship (except maybe a tiny bit in the ending). There weren't many surprises between the action on each other, except Charlene Choi keeps on getting in trouble. The ending was really good, but when Tony Leung was getting beat up, I find it annoying of what he keep on repeating.

I like to give prop to Cecilia Cheung cameo, that was hilarious and very true on what she said. This movie is worth the watch, this is by far above-average film.
