Comedian, writer, and actor Vincent Kok Tak-Chiu is one of my favorite filmmakers. His 2003 Lunar Holiday film, Dragon Loaded 2003, was a hit at the box office with local audiences. Of course, a sequel was in order. This time, Kok treats his characters like fish out of water, taking them from the hip city and putting them into a rural setting. This allows Kok plenty of funny material, poking fun at country folk, city folk, movies, and the people who make them.

Dragon Reloaded features the thinking man's Sammy, Ronald Cheng Chung-Kei, returning to his first starring role as Lung Wai, the goofball Hong Kong policeman. Thanks to director Vincent Kok Tak-Chiu's clever screenwriting, the movie was pretty funny with Cheng's mugging and cross-dressing antics. Funnymen Cheung Tat-Ming and Sam Lee Chan-Sam reprise their roles as his side kicks. These 2 actors always make me laugh. Kok gets good performances from a colorful supporting cast that features Miki Yeung Oi-Gan, Ken Lo Wai-Kwong, and goofy Tats Lau Yi-Dat.
