Looking for an Asian (HK?) movie

Postby Polar » Thu Mar 19, 2009 2:39 am

Hi,

I'm looking for an Asian (HK?) movie that I watched when I was a kid, I believe it was made in the late 1980's. Here are the details I remember:

  • Two guys that are cops are attacked by robot toys that shoot real ammo.
  • In one scene, a container exploded with a lot of balloons and these guys drive out in a Lamborghini, then later get out and drive on these miniature motorcycles.
  • In another scene, they synchronize their watches to ambush some meeting that the bad guys are having. One of them is suppose to go through the door, while the other jumps from the roof and swings through the window. The guy on the roof cuts the rope too short and ends up going through the window above into some older couple's room while then are watching tv.
  • I remember one part about some special prism that they were after.
  • Its an action comedy.
  • I'm pretty sure that the title has many parts, 4 or more.

I hope someone can help me.

Thanks.

Aces Go Places 2, or possibly 4. :D

I recall the robots in 2, but the prism seems like it was in 4, or am I misremembering that? :?

I consider Part 2 my "first" Hong Kong movie (barring some dodgy, late-night Kung-Fu Theatre TV shows in the 70's when I was a kid that never did much for me). I picked up the U.S. VHS tape in a rental store sale bin around 1987-ish (??), in part because the gadgety pictures on the box spoke to me, and since then I've been irreparably hooked . . .
