Movie's premise is retro late 60s style, but the production is throughly that of the 21st century.
Wong Jin is the producer, and Eris Tsang plays the 60s style cool guy that's surrounded by group of friends, and bevy of pretty girls. Natalie Meng is captured at the height of her beauty playing the lead female role. But other girls are just as stunningly beautiful.
Wong Jin seems to have regained his chops, and parades some of the best looking beauties from mainland China. It took him several years, but now he's back with vengeance. The comedic chops are still classic Wong Jin, and is still pretty funny.
If there's one thing I don't like about this movie, its the mainland Chinese style cinematography that seems to plague Hong Kong cinema since its repatriation to China. Every movies from Hong Kong these days has this blue-greenish tint to it that makes flesh tones look pale. I wish they'd stop using this technique, and return to the lavish color Hong Kong movies used to have.
I love the approach this movie is taking. The atmosphere is bit stiff and interior of the buildings asides from the studio shots are way below what it used to be, but the core movie is getting to be as entertaining as it was in the golden age of Hong Kong cinema.
Fire the production crew from mainland China. They're doing nothing of a service to the venerable Hong Kong movie industry. Then unleash the best talents from both Hong Kong and mainland China as seen with the actors in this movie.
