King Kong (Samuel Hui) and Albert "Baldy" Au (Karl Maka) were framed for robbery by brother and sister thieves (Leslie Cheung and Nina Li Chi), taking possession of a magnificent sword from antiquities smugglers. The smugglers attempt to hunt down Kong and Baldy, just as they were being pursued by the Hong Kong Police for their supposed "crime." Kong and Baldy managed to reprimand the brother/sister duo, but were all ultimately apprehended by the authorities and sent to a prison in China, putting their innocence and freedom in jeopardy.Written by
This is the fourth and last sequel of the Aces go Places series, where King Kong (Samuel Hui) and Albert "Baldy" Au (Karl Maka) were framed for robbery by brother and sister thieves (Leslie Cheung and Nina Li Chi) by taking possession of a sword from antiquities smugglers. Kong and Baldy managed to reprimand the brother/sister duo, but all were later apprehended by the authorities and sent to a prison in China.
This movie starts off pretty good with the daring heist by the brother and sister, but things get later meshed up with all the chaotic scenes of King King and Baldy trying to reprimand the thieves to the boring prison scenes in China. The movies relies a lot on slapstick silliness and forced action, leaving little room for suspense, though there are still some neat action scenes. Samuel Hui and Karl Maka seemed too over-the-top in their roles and Leslie Cheung and Nina Li Chi didn't have great chemistry. The absence of Sylvia Chang's Supt. Ho character was sorely missed. Overall, the weakest of the Aces go Places movies.
