garbage; trash; heap of steaming crap
17 May 2015 | by trulygrateSee all my reviews

Terrible

The story is forgetful, too many meaningless, shallow humor fillers.

Cheesy/cringe/anger causing moments with overdone cg and spontaneous visual effects (tvb is behind the production, you know what that means).

I would not watch this again if I was paid. In fact, I stopped watching half way through because I was so disgusted at the quality of this crap.

Typical Hong Kong garbage from director Wong Jing.

Cannot recommend to anyone.

1/10
