Funny, witty, and out of control!
I just finished watching this film, and I must say that this is one of the wittiest, films I've seen in a long time. It's a satire on Form 5 schools, (which is almost like juvenille schools) in Hong Kong. Many over the top fights, with some special effects in the mix, bullies, graffiti, all the sterotypical aspects of a "ghetto" school environment.
Main characters Stephen Fung, Nicholas Tse, and Joey Yung, give believable performances as the smart, the barbarian, and the annoying. The kung-fu fight scenes were done particularly well, since many of the actors had very little kung-fu training. Very slapstick, and is not to be taken too seriously, this film will keep your attention, if you are looking for a lighthearted fun time.
For those who are into video games, they will find it slightly more amusing near the end of the film.
