Storyline

A string of bank robberies sets off a public panic. In order to appease the residents of the city and fulfill his own ambitions, the newly appoints chief of police decides to hold an anti-bank robbery drill to demonstrate the effectiveness of the police. He secretly appoints a naïve traffic cop to disguise as a robber, overlooking the fact that the inflexible, by-the-book officer will go all out in accomplishing any assigned mission-even when it's robbery.

Well. While some wry comedies may be subjected to reviewers in need of a new pair of glasses, this reviewer was entertained by both the premise and execution of this film. One need not expect high art or brilliant script, nor production standards exceeding that needed to portray a cop with eccentric integrity faced with a challenge that questions his role in life and as an enforcer of basic values.

So, Do Man meets the new Chief of police assigned to his station in the form of a traffic pattern violator while Do Man is performing his duties as a newly demoted-to traffic cop. Upon unerringly issuing a traffic ticket to said person, Do Man finds himself in a head to head play of wills after being charged by the new chief to act as the bank-robber in a police training simulation intended to quell critics of the departments inability to stop local bank heists.

Little did the new Chief of Police foresee the conviction Do Man would duly bring to bear in order to carry out his assignment. Ooooops!

This is a comedy. The acting is par given the intrinsic cultural subtlety and the scripts plot holes with which the actors were charged to respectively portray and abide. A dead guy driving a bus is simply loose plotting, but contrived for closure. That said, the subtle plot points and the tiny but poignant romance were enough to give this film warmth and value.

Perhaps there could be an INMCDB, ha ha. Some reviewers miss the point in the endeavor to be critics and not observers.

All said, this was an enjoyable film with originality in idea, and as such can be forgiven any flaws in execution as minor.
