A very strange movie, kind of like AFTER HOURS. Christy Chung is a local punk who is wanted by a gang, Simon Yam has come to HK from San Francisco to look for his girlfriend, and Teresa Mak is trying to meet a potential new boyfriend. These three storylines are constantly crossing over one another in sometimes creative, sometimes awkward ways. Now that I think about it, I guess it was a pretty entertaining, but best left for video so that you can rewind the parts you don't understand. The ending is so corny it will make you cringe.

Good photography, cool Christy and some other neat stuff, but becomes a disappointing mess by the end.

A totally confusing story (but of course, HK movies aficionadosare not thrown by *that*), and people dressed up in weird costumes. And acting like they were totally high on something. That is, everybody except Simon Yam. He looks good in the movie, and if you like Ms. Chung, you will like it. Overall, quite fun.

Summary: NULL

A crime/romance drama, the plot hinging entirely on coincidence, about a bunch of shrill young HK women (including Christy Chung under tons of makeup and two different wigs) who are sucked into a drug transfer gone wrong. Two dumb guys (Simon Yam, David Ng) play doormats. Shot with lots of purple and green lighting, and save Christy, poses a convincing argument for theater head-rests and ear-plugs.

(1.5/4)
