Fallon Chu (Donnie Yen) is a Hong Kong Police Special Task Force agent. An agile fighter with a high crime detection rate, he's considered a role-model in the eye of both the police force as well as the public. He gets assigned to a case of escorting a well known criminal to Japan using his experiences and fighting capabilities to keep it safe during the job. Unfortunately, things are not going well in his private life as he has to deal with problems with his fiancee while planning their wedding. After a series of mishaps between them, she suddenly dumps him. Heartbroken he indulges himself in food to relieve his state of shock and loneliness, and in three month' time his endless intemperance turns him into a 300-pound being.Written by
Has potential to be renaissance classic, but it turns out to be just a mediocre time killer
Okay movie for fun watching, it really has a potential to be a classic like old Jackie Chan Hong Kong action comedy movie....but it does not.
The movie sets out to be a comedy due to the design of the first scene. But there is no comedy in all the fights. The fatness just be there for the sake of fatness...there is not a single scene of Yen fighting with his fatness as a comedy point or disadvantage, (for an example, after he jump from one roof to another, the director actually can make it more fun and he can break the roof and fall through or stuck in the hole for further comedy effect) but after he got fat he fights exactly as he used to as agile as it can be even flying, cmon man....The Bruce Lee reference is also there for no relation...so whats the point ?
