Movie Description:
Is anyone who he says he is in this caper that moves from Hong Kong and Las Vegas to Tokyo? Ken doesn't show up in Vegas for his wedding; his disconsolate bride, Macy, heads home for Hong Kong and finds John, an interior decorator, waiving a check of Ken's that has bounced. She leaves immediately for Tokyo to find her businessman boyfriend, and John tags along. Ken's flat is teeming with members of the Ito gang, who are also looking for Ken. John and Macy escape, with the help of a crew of look-alike cuties who work for Lin, who claims to be a private investigator. He too is looking for Ken. Where is Ken, why has he disappeared, and who will find him first?

Chinese version of Twilight

Tony Leung (Hero, Infernal Affairs I, II, III, Red Cliff, Lust, Caution) opens with more tricks that James Bond, and an ability with an umbrella that rivals Toshir? Mifune's ability with a sword. We haven't a clue what the movie is about, but the action is hot and heavy.

He meets Kelly Chen (Infernal Affairs, Infernal Affairs III) looking for a guy (Ekin Cheng ) who owes him money. Another big fight ensues. Cecilia Cheung, who was in the infamous sex photos with Edison Chen, saves them both and takes them to the man who explains what they need to know about the missing guy.

What you end up with is the Chinese version of New Moon, a movie designed with pop stars and celebrities to appeal to teens. Nothing worthy of Tony Leung's talents, and certainly not a good Chines gangster flick.

Fun and fast moving spy caper

After being jilted on her wedding day, Macy (Chen) journeys to Tokyo to look for her errant fiancé Ken. She's accompanied by Yung (Cheng), a disgruntled interior designer (with kung-fu skills!) who's decorated the happy couple's Hong Kong apartment and is after his pay-cheque.

It soon becomes clear that Ken has been up to no good in Japan, and is in trouble with the authorities and the mob. Macy finds herself beset on all sides by people wanting to use her in their efforts to hunt him down. Luckily, playboy man of mystery Lin (Leung) is on hand to batter the baddies and rescue the fair maiden - provided no-one tries to damage his face!

This colourful spy caper from Jingle Ma is fun and fast moving. While the plot veers between baffling and boring, there's always a fight or action scene around the corner to keep you amused. The mambo soundtrack is a little off-putting at first, but you'll probably end up whistling it for the rest of the day.

Leung's physical prowess is respectable - plus he seems to be doing most of his own impressive stunts, and Cheng is convincing when he's beating on hordes of mob goons. Chen mostly screams and cowers during the fight scenes, but there's girl power on hand from Lin's team of gorgeous sidekicks, including the lovely Cecilia Cheung and Shibasaki Kou.

This is fun stuff and well worth a watch. Tony Leung is always good value, even in more light-hearted movies, and Kelly Chen is as lovely as always and - as a bonus - not too shrill in this one.

past its sell-by date

This would be a good film, if it had been made in 1975. But 2001? It tries hard to overcome the budgetary restraints, and the no-joys of filming in Japan are well-documented. But the jump cuts, in-camera effects, and even Tony Leung and Kelly Chen can't make up for poor acting (especially the J-girl Charlie's Angels rip-offs) and production values that resemble an episode of Kojak. The jokes don't really work, and the twists keep coming, because there is little else to keep you interested. What were Hiroshi Abe and Ko Shibasaki doing in this? And for the Japan audience, the choice of locations is incredibly uninspired - Shinjuku, Shibuya, Rainbow Bridge, Yokohama Minato Mirai. Tepid fare.
