This movie was great!

This movie was one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. Makes me want to go get some hamburgers. The plot of this movie was great and the interaction between the two main characters and Tin Chan was so funny i had to watch it like 50 more times. This is one of the movies that I have watched to most, over and over and it still doesn't lose its charm. Andy Lau is his usual self. 10 out of 10.

Slightly silly but very effective Hong Kong comedy

There are plenty of laugh-out-loud moments in this Chinese fantasy comedy. Two friends discover an old cave (not unlike in the first Indiana Jones movie) where they trigger a mechanism which revives a princess, her handmaiden and an evil kung fu master who have been asleep there for 250 years. Lots of wacky fun ensues as these characters have to adapt to all the technical conveniences of modern-day Hong Kong (in fact, some of the situations are so similar to the 1993 French time-traveling comedy Les Visiteurs that one almost suspects the writer of that movie to have been inspired by this one). The evil kung fu master pursues the princess, but becomes distracted by TV commercials for everything from chips and Coca-Cola to hamburgers (where the actors use kung fu moves and dances) which he then believes are the food of champions! The movie also has many comical references to other movies, like for instance Rambo III... The story gets rather nonsensical towards the end of the movie, particularly with the animated turtle, which has no reason whatsoever for being there. Overall, the movie is good fun nonetheless. 6 out of 10. (A "6" may seem a low grade, but I'm rather strict in my ratings philosophy. A "6" means "above average" and "fairly entertaining" and "probably worth watching again sometime".)

An acrobatic comedy with lesser action.

This is a Hong Kong comedy that is a spin-off from the 1960s Chinese martial arts story, Buddha's Palm. Friends Charles and Chi (Andy Lau, Pak-Cheung Chan) visit Mainland China and discover an ancient cave that houses what is supposed to be the tomb of the legendary martial artist Lung Gim-Fei. The friends find an old spell book and practice some magic, which unintentionally breaks open a wall and releases a dormant princess (Joey Wang) and her handmaiden (Siu-Wai Mui). Charles and Chi take the Princess and her Handmaiden back to Hong Kong with them, unaware that they were followed by the just-awaken evil warlord, Tien Chien (Wah Yuen). Lead actors Lau and Chan does a good job in delivering comedy and charm, as do lead actresses Joey Wang and Siu-Wai Mui. There are plenty of puns, mostly courtesy of Chan and Siu-Wai. While there are some acrobatic superpower scenes, from Lau taking down a bunch of knife-wielding gangsters to Wah Yuen's powerful drop-kick, the comedy consumes much of the picture, leaving lesser room for action and suspense. I would have liked to see the Buddha Palm plot device emphasized more and the Joey Wang and Siu-Wai Mui characters given a larger purpose in the film. Overall, it is not a bad comedy, but would like to see more of the fantasy elements emphasized. Grade B-
