not revolutionary but definitely fun
14 April 2006 | by sicksea11See all my reviews

Piao has been killed in a drug warehouse and its been written as a suicide. his soul come back as a ghost to try and fix this. his sky chosen savior is Hsing(Stephen Chow). Hsing agrees to find his killer for the price of helping him score girls and help with his job.

first of all the movies DVD remake is called Shaolin idiot. i thought this was a irrelevant title but whatever. The film itself was nicely directed. There's a little bit of everything in this movie. comedy action romance, its all nicely done. a problem is that this movie is like many other honk Kong films so if u watched a lot of hong Kong movie this movie might seem a little typical, but i overall great movie to see for fun. with Stephen Chow in it u can safely except a few laughs.
