This Is Such A Silly Film
You really have to check your intellect at the door for this one. Its the story of Tung, who recruits a bunch of rogues to wreak havoc in Hong Kong by stealing (hence the title of the film). A large part of the film is their preparation to do it. The film is so full of slapstick and crazy fighting you'll become dizzy. The cast is the best part: A very young Chingmy Yau, the ever reliable Eric Tsang and the always watchable Sandra Ng, amongst others. They try real hard and there are a few fun parts, but overall the film is just a crazy mesh of scenes. It gets a 5 due to it not being boring, but its just all over the map and, at times, illogical. So, if you like crazy comedy with a lot of fighting but little sense, this is your film.
