Storyline

Chou Sai-Cheong. a bitter supervisor of a Hong Kong private security company, teaches unusual guard tactics to new recruits such as electric mats, parachuting off burning buildings and counter-attacking gunfire. He was secretly observed by his new boss (Stanley Fung) and, unimpressed by his work, the new boss demotes Chou and promotes Chou's assistant Sam (Sam Hui). Under the leadership of Sam, Chou and new recruit Bruce Tang (Ricky Hui) encounter a slew of misadventures, including pursuing stowaways on a party boat. Bruce ultimately falls in love with one of the stowaways. Finally, they all get entangled in a plot to steal one of China's most prized treasures on display in Hong Kong, and in a plot involving some missing government money that the security officers were guarding.

Hui Brothers Comedy Fest!
3 March 2005 | by Captain_CouthSee all my reviews

Security Unlimited (1981) was the last official Hui Brothers comedy film together (although they would appear together in other comedies but not all three at the same time). Their latter films were geared more towards younger audiences compared to the first three, but don't let that steer you away because this film his very enjoyable and fun for all ages.

Michael Hui stars as the head officer of a security firm. Sam Hui co-stars as his second in commander whilst Ricky plays a new recruit who joins the two on many assignments. Stanley Fung plays the son of the firm's owner and doesn't care for the antics of Michael and calls many of his ideas and techniques "outdated". The three guards go through a series of adventures such as foiling a group of grave robbers, a bank heist, helping a family of illegals come into Hong Kong but their biggest trial lies ahead. A gang of thieves want to break into the fiftieth floor of a high rise and take the Imperial treasure from an ancient Chinese Emperor. Can the three brothers rise to the occasion yet again and stop their biggest challenge to date? Will Ricky earn the respect of his fellow guards? Can Michael put up with his co-workers for one more month? To find out you'll have to watch Security Unlimited.

More hilarity from the Hui brothers. Even though it's their last film together, the brothers have managed to appear in each others films such as Chicken and Duck Talk and The Chocolate Inspector. Funny in their own right but not as good as this one. Highly recommended for fans of Cantonese comedies and slapstick humor. Enjoy!
