Summary: Less than I hoped
This film was less than I hoped from Chow. It's very slow in places and when it does pick up, the humor isn't there. This film is a spoof of Bond films ala HK comedy style. It is extreme at times in violence (as when a father is shot in the head by a thief in front of his son - what's up with that in a comedy film?!?) and lame slapstick humor as when Chow is having a bullet extracted from his leg with a dead pan face. To be fair, it was mildly funny in some places, but those places are too few.
