Pretty dull film-noir.
24 September 2013 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

This film stars George Lam and Teddy Robin Kwan as a private investigator and a police detective, assigned to prevent a notorious gangster from taking money and stocks from an old millionaire. Along the way, they meet some off-the-wall characters like femme fatales and slapstick gangsters. Made in the style of film noir, the story is set in Hong Kong, circa 1930s-40s. Although the cinematography is good and gives you an old-Chicago-mobster like atmosphere, the story is pretty boring and acting is sub-par. Slapstick and childish humor from the supporting and extra characters try to help to make this into an enjoyable comedy, but, unfortunately, they didn't deliver an exciting movie. Therefore, I prefer to watch this film's sequel, the more funny and intriguing All The Wrong Spies, over this one.

Grade D-
