Storyline

Raymond Mak is a despicable stock trader who gets handed a day from Hell. First he's fired by his boss and then he's robbed. Raymond already has a new job lined up across the harbour, but getting from Wanchai to Tsimshatsui requires at least three dollars for the ferry, or more for the MTR or a taxi. But without any cash or ID, Raymond will have to call in a favor or two. Written by Anonymous

Great movie that's hard to find
4 April 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have been trying to get this movie for ages and ages and finally found it on Amazon for a sweet one pound fifty can u believe! If you have ever seen Young and dangerous you will know Jordan Chan, the hero of this movie. Well, what can I make of it?? Brilliant! Do you remember all of those HK movies from the 1980's/90's? You know, basic storyline, bad guy becomes good, kind of washed out colours, bad sound, but amazing. The movies you watched in bed when u were a kid and made you want to go to Hong Kong... This is one of them. A real feel good movie. Basically, story wise, a Hong Kong business man loses his job and has to find his way across the small stretch of water to Kowloon bay for another job interview, unfortunately he has no money due to a robbery and not many friends to help him either. Honestly, it's a one watch movie that you will remember, and even though made recently, brings back the memories of all those older HK movies with all that character that is slowly dying away. I really recommend this one, probably for one of those nights when all of your friends have gone out and you have the flu and feel sorry for yourself! It will make your night....
