OK , Maybe 9/10 is too high but the average needs to go up.
I found this on blu-ray at my local library (!) and one look at the title caught my attention. I hadn't seen any HK type comedies in a long time so I thought this deserved a chance.
Funny, zany and somewhat scatological in it's humor with a healthy dose of thrills, sentiment and general silliness in the Chow manor, this picture was a pleasant surprise and I found it entertaining to watch. While it is Chinese humor it does translate (maybe not verbally) to those who appreciate comedy. The subtitles come fast and furious to the Western eye but the action speaks for itself.
My only complaint was the excruciatingly long climax to the film, but the CGI was spectacular.
So, A HK comedy made n HK by mainland artists. Recommended.
