In Hong Kong, Circa 1940s, World War II, private detective Yoyo and friend Inspector Teddy Robin join a resistance group during the Japanese occupation. They aim to steal back the formula to the atomic bomb from a war traitor and transfer it to an American before the formula ends up in the Japanese emperor's hands.Written by
This is the story of Yoyo (George Lam), who is hired to be the go between of a Jewish scientist an an American who is going to have the secret to the atomic bomb during World War 2. This is a silly film, all over the map. Its kind of like the Leslie Nielsen spoofs that proliferated the movie screens for years. That is not necessarily a bad thing however, and the inclusion of the beautiful Brigitte Lin is very welcome. She is probably the best thing about this film, as she makes you take notice, and not only for her beauty. A nonsense 90 minutes plus film, its a somewhat fun way to pass the time. You're not expecting profundity and you're not going to get it. It aims low ans succeeds. If you like spoof films, go ahead and try it.
