A silly action comedy flick.
18 January 2016 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

This is a silly Hong Kong comedy flick starring Sammo Hung and Alan Tam as two undercover policemen. They pose as a gay couple in order to investigate a ring of homicides plaguing Hong Kong.

When I first saw the trailer for this movie I was pretty excited to see it. Alan Tam acting gay was hilarious, and him partnering up with Sammo Hung is something I haven't seen on the screen before - pretty entertaining to see.

The film does drag on a bit toward the middle of the movie, then it's more of the usual kidnapping and action that becomes pretty cliché in these movies. It's not all a bad a movie, just more of the same.

Grade C
