Boring - nothing much to see.

Lam Ching Ying returns in another ghost comedy, set in period times, in a movie where a Buddhist lama and an evil wizard battle for the Palace of Heaven.

The plot seems unique, but there is the usual Taoist magic and martial arts action in this fantasy movie, but well into the 1990s, this genre has been losing steam and this movie was no exception, even with Lam Ching-Ying in it. Even though he is the only saving grace in the movie, there were very few charms, suspense and intrigue that are usually found in the earlier horror and ghost comedies. Even the comedy is immature and tacky at best.

There are better stuff with Lam Ching Ying in in out there. It's OK to pass on this one.

Grade D--
