| blackmailing the thieves!
Sammo Hung is a thief who has just retired. he is living an ordinary life until someone from his past blackmails him into helping juvenile delinqents. also a victim, is one of his former thief friends...

moderately funny surroundings, some good laughs, and some good fights. a touching moment with the teenagers as well. 7/10
