Summary: Disappointing

The re-teaming of Pang Dan and Tsui KK promised action and good looks, perhaps a sort of cheapie sequel to their terrific ANOTHER CHINESE COP, where Pang plays a similar character but Tsui is on the other side of the law.

Alas, no. The story is hopelessly lame and there's nowhere near enough flashy action to make up for that fault. Pang wearing deep plunging necklines, recrossing her legs a la Basic Instinct and getting most of her clothes off for no good reason all should have helped. But that stupid hypnosis scene put paid to any sense of cred. Pang's dancing and wiggling does help a bit, and it's more like Marilyn Monroe than Faye Wong.

The ending is especially hard to swallow for any viewer with more than half a brain. Don't be in a hurry to rent this one, though it's okay if you're bored.

This low budget film turned out to be much better than I had been expecting. It has a certain charm and silliness that slowly creep up on you as the film progresses. It takes a while to realize that the film is basically all tongue in cheek and not taking itself at all seriously. Max Mok heads a team of cops who protect witnesses. Pang Dan is the witness and Tsui Kam-Kong is trying to silence her. Lots of amusing parodies from Basic Instinct to my favorite of Chungking Express with Pang Dan doing her best Faye Wong wiggle behind the counter.
