Average Comedy With Decent Action
19 February 2020 | by coconutkungfu-30704See all my reviews

This is more of a Dean Shek comedy than a Sammo Hung starring film. The comedy will work for those familiar with the jokes seen in previous kung fu comedies. Not all jokes land but it is made up for by some better than expected action.

All things considered a decent watch.
