| Lots of action, stunts, violence and jokes
So this was fun! An early Wong Jing flick with lots of action, stunts, violence and moronic jokes. It's basically the old we've-got-to-get-the-team-back-together mercenary story. A gang of ex-military guys are hired by a mysterious dame who wants them to go into Cambodia and kidnap the man who killed her father. Before the gang gets to Cambodia there are numerous fights and gags, some of them pretty stupid, like the one with the cross dresser, but that comes with this type of silly Hong Kong flick. In the last half hour or so, the flick turns pretty violent and dark. I like those extreme gear changes in Hong Kong cinema: one minute you're laughing you ass off, the next you're hit on the head with the death of a child. Worth your time if you are fan of eighties Hong Kong action flicks.
