An amusing HK crime comedy.
19 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

Sammo Hung stars as jewelry company employee Ting, who is mistreated by his boss and, as revenge, decides to kidnap his wife and demand ransom money for her release. However, things don't go according to plan as he kidnapped the daughter instead! The movie has a good amount of intrigue and humor to keep the plot interesting and and fast-paced. The acting was spot-on - actors not overexerting himself except for Anthony Chan as the Detective, whom I thought was a show-off in the film. Hung and co-star Kenny Bee had some nice counterpart chemistry together.

It's a good film, amusing and fun.

Grade A
