Summary: worth it for the title...

eddy ko is an instructor at a police academy. unfortunately for him, in one of his past lives, he murdered an innocent family; now, they're out to get him. he drafts in a goup of cadets to help him, and his assistant sandra ng, to take on the vampire ghost family.

the film just scrapes past the 70 minute mark; it's crass and silly, but i found myself enjoying it. probably more than i should. there's a few nice special effects thrown in, some decent fighting and lots of very silly fun.

This poor entry in the "vampire/ghost busting" genre has Eddy Ko Hung playing a police instructor whose camp is being besieged by a group of ghosts. After consulting a priest, Eddy brings in a group of cadets who were all born in the year of the dragon, and trains them in the art of fighting ghosts. And that's about it. Running at a scant seventy-two minutes, Vampire Settle on Police Camp struggles to even fill in that short running time, with a good deal of frames wasted on dumb musical montages and several gags that are stretched far beyond their already thin premises.

Really, nothing at all here is done compentently, much less actually done well. The characters are all cookie-cutter cliches (the tough kid, the nerdy guy, the suave one, etc.) and the script feels like it was wirtten by a couple of drunken monkeys; plot developments come and go on a whim, and even though the basic story is very simple, it still manages to make no sense. There are a couple of decent fights, but even if the ghost of Bruce Lee made an appearance here, it still couldn't save Vampire Settle on Police Camp from being a total dud.

Fast-moving but uneven hodgepodge of sex gags, kung fu and taoist spells, featuring an assortment of undead monsters versus a motley crew of police academy members, familiar from movies such as Haunted Cop Shop.

There's some decent action choreography, and if you're in the mood for some brainless fun, you could do worse. Not as good as some of the more prominent films in this genre, but a passable time-waster nonetheless.

Summary: Fair....

Even though this has some really wild scenes it just doesn't make it for me. While I like Sandra Ng in this, it's the kid and his ghost family that peters out as far as being very convincingly scary etc..The first 10 minutes w/ Eddie Ko starts off well. Then it drags with the police cadet's gags etc..I think "Here Comes a Vampire" is about the same plot except it really ends up more of a semi-decent thriller than this. See both films(if you have time and access) and you'll see what I mean. Not horrible but not that good either.
