This slapstick/wacky 80's Chinese comedy will be a brutal time for most Westerners to sit through, however the last 15 minutes of this movie features an well choreographed gunfight which is one of the best out of Hong Kong during this crime-action-obsessed period. The Heroic Bloodshed genre features bizarre childish comedic elements injected into extremely violent scenes. The tone of such movies must be taken from an open minded approach, otherwise you'll become frustrated by not understanding what type of movie it wants to be. (The flaw is it doesn't know) If your looking for a good Heroic Bloodshed ending, and I do stress only for the ending, then check this one out. Last 15 minutes deserves a 10 out of 10, the rest of it 2 out of 10, overall 6/10.
