Storyline

Is anyone who he says he is in this caper that moves from Hong Kong and Las Vegas to Tokyo? Ken doesn't show up in Vegas for his wedding; his disconsolate bride, Macy, heads home for Hong Kong and finds John, an interior decorator, waiving a check of Ken's that has bounced. She leaves immediately for Tokyo to find her businessman boyfriend, and John tags along. Ken's flat is teeming with members of the Ito gang, who are also looking for Ken. John and Macy escape, with the help of a crew of look-alike cuties who work for Lin, who claims to be a private investigator. He too is looking for Ken. Where is Ken, why has he disappeared, and who will find him first? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Pretty boy Ekin Cheng nearlly steals the show...
14 July 2002 | by FreeThinker25See all my reviews

When the film opened with cantonese spanish music to an action fight in Tokyo, I knew this was going to be a winner.

It is a fantastic action comedy, Ekin Cheng and Tony Leung working together admirably as a bit of an odd couple. Tony Leung doing a great job at the action, even if he isn't an action actor really (he still insisted doing his own stunts).

THis was the first film I saw Ekin Cheng in...and since I've been ordering his floppy haired dvds from Hong Kong. He is a great actor, does the action well (he should, he's a Kung Fu champion) and is as funny as hell.

I didn't like the Macy character (or the actress who played her)...she was so...dumb. I don't think much acting was needed for that either. Now I'd hate to insinuate anything between the director and her... The 'actress' is a pop star really, and when I saw a CD of hers in China town with her wearing this plastic power rangers outfit...well I smiled in sweet revenge.

The plot isn't complicated, and even if you don't get it first time round it dousn't matter it's still an enjoyable film.

If you watch this PLEASE watch it subbed. As always, the dubbing is appalling, with the laugh line pin-up idol Ekin Cheng delivers 'I'm not pretty but I can fight!'...did the dubbing script writers even see the cover??
