The Tricky Master (1999)

Summary: Everybody loves Stephen Chow, BUT...
This is undoubtedly one of Stephen Chow's worst movies. Just plain stupid; unlike some of his earlier, FUNNIER ones, Tricky Master seems to have excluded many of the important elements which made Stephen Chow the "king of comedy". I consider the acting very mediocre, and the plot ridiculous, as this is supposedly a comedy and I found myself barely smiling when I saw this in a theatre, which THIS MOVIE, mind you, IS THE FIRST MODERN HK FILM I HAVE EVER SEEN IN A CHINESE MOVIE THEATER IN CHINA. At the time, I have never even heard of Stephen Chow (it was before I got into HK movies at all). Just a little insightful pereference from me... [6/10]
