On the eve of the Chinese Dynastical millennium, a score of Triad gangs converge on a warehouse. They are all seeking to hold, as the clock strikes midnight, an ancient Chinese artifact which promises to the bearer at that fateful hour, prosperity for the next 1,000 years. At the centre of this decidedly dangerous situation, are two small time crooks, who have been unwittingly conned into caretaking the gem until midnight. They have no inkling of the gem's real significance, or why so many sadistic people are determined to possess it. but they're slowly finding out. Written by
When the Triads interview John and Jerry you can just make out the camera assistant in the right of frame in the long shot. This frame was enlarged for the recent DVD print and now looks like a shadow in the corner. See more »
If you buy this film. Say something. Review it. Let anyone know what you think. Me I think Finely crafted piece of Low Budget Trash. This is the kind of film that you can watch more than once. I know I still snigger at some of the jokes on repeated viewing. It may be that it is like a piece of music which grows on you. The jokes are in jokes which get better if you think about them. In the end there is not enough fighting and to much time spent tied to chairs but out of all the low budget Brit flicks I have seen this one has the advantage of not taking itself very seriously. It would be nice to see this team head off to some form of Ealing chaos they would be able too pull t off with aplomb. Better Acting than you would expect, Stoy so thin if you look at it side on you can't see it. God Dialogue and a cracking feel. Some thing different for Friday night in. Enjoy and comment.
