Now a Classic
19 February 2013 | by ebiros2See all my reviews

When this movie first came out, I never expected it to be the classic that it has become. It's really a somewhat unlikely, and silly story about a man who doesn't know a good thing when he gets one, and ruins his life. Hong Kong actress Amy Yip who was known for her nice figure was the attraction for seeing this movie.

The other attraction that was somewhat unexpected was the scene between Rena Murakami, and Isabella Chow. Rena was starring in both Japan, and Hong Kong in the early '90s, and was a much sought out talent. If you see this scene, you can see why.

This movie received lot of endorsement from Hong Kong Penthouse magazine when it first came out, and probably this publicity helped in making it the commercial success that it was.

It's a lavish production for a Cat III movie, and is made very well. The success of this movie seemed to benefit future up coming stars that has appeared in part 2, and 3 of this movie, like Siu Qi. So it had rather wide reaching effect as well.

Not an artistic movie, but good entertainment from the '90s Hong Kong.
