Summary: To rob or not to rob?

What is it with HK movies these days? They're getting from bad to worse. Well, this movie is just one of the uninteresting, boring and senseless movie. Story starts of with Cheung Tat-Ming needing money to pay off the loan shark. Together with another friend, he plots to steal the money from Law Kar-Ying, a rich old man who's interested in pretty girls. They opened a mee shop to be able to lure him out of the house and then rob him. The mee shop turned out to be a success and their business was all well. They even decided to not rob the old man because if business continues as such, they'd be rich in no a couple of months! However, things don't turned out as planned and 'Plan A' (to rob) surfaces. Meanwhile his wife bought a lottery and when they finally robbed the old man, she realized that they just hit the jackpot! Overcomed with conscience, they decided to return the money back. All was well until one day they received a video from the old man, claiming that he knew of their deeds. He blackmailed them requested for Tat-Ming's wife to go to his house to discuss about the issue. All thought that the old man wanted to sleep with Tat-Ming's wife but in the end, their guesses was wrong. He was after the Tat Ming's mother in-law instead. A really crappish movie with low class acting I should say. Although the main idea is kinda weird n might be interesting to some, the outcome of it was not as good as hoped. Yet another movie which only deserves a 2/10.
