Stephen Fung directorial debut
14 June 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

And a fine film he had made.

The plot was nothing special, a boss (Yuen Biao) whose dying wish was that his son (Daniel Wu) he never loved to take over for him. In this case, the son is gay and he brought along with his friend (play by Eason Chan) who purposely act has Hung's son.

What make this movie great is the pace of the film, the subplot and the movie is just hilarious. The Almost 3 way triangle between Karen Mok, Eason Chan and Dainel Wu was excellent. Seeing Law Kar-Ying was hilarious, and Chapman To was funny most of the time. The cameo from Nic Tse, Sammi Cheng and Jackie Chan was beautiful put, Sammi Cheng was super funny for her role. This movie is still not perfect, like the ending ( a fight scene) was cheesily, has in look fake, done. Also the gay aspect can be annoying at time. Nevertheless the flow of the movie work perfectly and the acting was above par. Also i like to give my head up on the triad angle was shot very well.

Stephen Fung show high potential to be a great director, with the help from Jackie Chan i can see he can make a lot more great film.
