Summary: Martial Arts/slapsticks/nonsense
This is one of Stephen Chow's unfunniest movies. Compared to Royal Tramp, this isn't even a comedy any more. There is a total laugh of a minute or two, as opposed to an hour or so from that of Royal Tramp II. While the first half provided excellent action, awesome wire stunts and a straight-forward plot, the second half was almost like a different movie, with little understanding, stupid slapsticks, and sickening behaviors. I have the 2-sided VCD version. If you also get this version, I think it is to your benefit that you completely avoid side 2. It is horribly overpacked with immoral stuff. [7/10]
