Don't ask me why I see these crapola movies....I just do.

This film, directed by Donnie Yen is worse than Twins Effect. Its messier, its lazier(in terms of plotting and editting), its less funny and its kungfu is laughable. Don't ask me what's the story. It won't make sense to you. Suffice to say there are aliens and magic beans, purple femme fatales and black roses...enough!!!! Horrors!!! Horrors my repressed memories for having seen this flick....

Ouch, the Twins' unfunny-but-straining-to-be-cute shtick grates on me nerves like chalk on black board. So they should really count themselves lucky I see this flick for someone else....

Yes, I see this celluloid heap of dung for the sake of my second fave comedian of the 90's (after Stephen Chow that is), Ms Teresa Mo. It is very very nice to see her back. Just look at that devilish relish she imbues into this role in above pic. Nice. Any scenes with her around is funnier than it should be, just a facial twitch here or a slight grimace there, I'll laugh with her just standing there......Unfortunately, this also amplifies how much more unfunny the other characters are. Yikes!!

E-kin Cheng is a joke. He can't act, he's OTT and he's completely bereft of comic timing. Where he's gonna hide his face for this acting disgrace, I also don't dare to imagine already. By the way, what's his name again?

For no reasons whatsoever, one woman in this flick will be spanked for a unbelievably loooooooooong time. This has gotta be the strongest lesbian subtext I have detected in a mainstream PG film in recent times....we see many scenes of the twins hugging and touching...hugging and touching each other.....Okay, at least it is now one of the few "guilty pleasures" moments I can take away from this horrid horrid flick.

So did I like it? Well, its sheer torture of the highest order folks!!!!!! But yes, I liked it. LOL... Note that the Sinnerman cannot be trusted for I have a blind weakness for HK comedies. I have very very low expectations for'em. As long as its 10-15% funny, can already...and this flick bearly scrapes by. Com'on, I love Twins Effect for chrissake!

SO FOLKS, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED....
