I've tried to give a review with harsh words against this film, but maybe it's too harsh for the sensor guys @ imdb whose hearts and minds couldn't and wouldn't accept such bloody lynchings on this film, so...Well, let me try again to say something cruelly true about this ridiculous film. The movie maker of this film has borrowed so many segments from those famous foreign films and patched up randomly and freely in such going-of-the-mill patch up work. We saw the guy put a rose on his suits lapel to make a copy of "God Father", then again and again, he just used his whimsical thoughts and made the whole film into a Chinese Buffet, and those dishes could be easily spotted and redeemed from many foreign movies. This is a miserable farce and a complete waste of money of the blind investors. So many shallow and self-justified wisecracking jokes to be used as the ridiculous dialog. Broadway shows with lot of flesh and attires were pitched on the screen to make you believe that's what it was in Shanghai when foreign powers occupied part of that city. The logic was thrown out of the window, a film more like written and directed by a junkie high on pot smoking. You didn't see anything logically linked together but just a randomly formatted farce. We've tried our best to have the patience to sit through it, but had to bail out soon enough in case we might throw beer bottles at the screen. This film is complete waste of time and money. If there's certain humor in it, we didn't see it, and we never laughed but felt sad for this once-pretty-good talent. Well, I'm feeling that I'm writing a eulogy instead of a review to this guy and his lousy movie.
