Naked Weapon (2002)
Reviewed by: pjshimmer on 2005-07-12
There is a scene that sums up the movie for me: a taoist attempts to enlighten Daniel Wu, but Wu cannot understand Chinese, so he demands English be spoken. Daniel Wu looks pretty pathetic in that scene, but it's almost like the director's self criticism for making a HK movie, with Chinese characters, entirely in English. This move certainly didn't make the director look brilliant, and the shockingly pathetic box office indicates something definitely went wrong with the movie (with inflation in regard, this movie grossed less than an average HK movie from 40 years ago).

I did watch Naped Weapon again recently, and I must say, the acting will always stink, but the action will always please to some extent. Ching Siu Tung is still Ching Siu Tung, and his choreography still has his trademark.

Reviewer Score: 6
