Martial arts great Sammo Hung stars as Success Hung, a Hong Kong phone salesman who witnesses a murder of a triad gang leader and, unfortunately, is pursued by the two masked killers who spots Hung as the witness. Hung consults psychiatrist Dr. Ko (Joyce Godenzi) to help him with his already-complicated life and inadvertently runs into the masked murderers, who were also seeking psychiatric help for their hunger for killing. Hung's policewoman wife Lisa (Li Yu) and her colleague Ai (Collin Chou), who despises Hung, try to protect him.
This movie has a good dose of humor, including the love-hate relationship between Hung and his fiery co-worker Ling (Carol 'Do Do' Cheng) and the chatty personality of Dr. Ko. There are some good martial arts action between Hung and Chou, and some eerie and dark scenes featuring the masked killers Owl and Bat. Jacky Cheung and Lam Ching-Ying really took their out-of-character roles of Owl and Bat to a whole different level - very chilling and dynamic. Carol Cheng, though, overdid it and over indulged in her role as Ling.
The plot goes at a fast pace. I thought the main story about Hung trying to escape the killers, with co-worker Ling caught in the chaos, is cleverly done. Ai's personal vendetta against Hung adds onto the suspense. And, where there is no action, there is laugh-out-loud comedy. A fun movie!
