(Cantonese with English subtitles) Classic, slapstick, all-out-ridiculous Hong Kong action-comedy delivered by the one-and-only Stephen Chow (Kung Fu Hustle, Shaolin Soccer), who plays a SWAT team leader going undercover at a high school to retrieve a stolen gun for his captain.Written by

In this action comedy, Stephen Chow stars as SWAT team leader Detective Sing Chow, who goes undercover at a high school to retrieve a stolen gun for the Commissioner.
As with many of Stephen Chow's films, this one has no shortage of slapstick humor and ridiculous action-comedy. Chow proves he could do action as well when he tries to deal with the ammunition smugglers when they raid the school and hold a group of students hostage. In the mist of all the mayhem is a touch of romantic humor courtesy of Sing's affection with school official Miss Ho (Sharla Cheung).
A little goofy here and there, but this is a pretty good film and is rather entertaining.
