| Hilarious film about acceptance in the Triads
Hong Kong actor and musician Stephen Fung makes his directorial debut with this film about the estranged son of a dying Triad leader who is chosen to become the new Dragon Head. However, the potential Dragon Head, Georgie Hung, is gay and he doesn't want any part of it. Instead, Georgie's friend Sam decides this is the opportunity to make a name for himself and pretends to be Georgie. For most of the film, there is the case of mistaken identity with the stereotypes in play when seen. However, the film is ultimately about acceptance in a traditional setting among the Triads as the real Georgie is set to meet his fate and stop a rival from another gang hellbent on not only exposing Georgie but also take over his own gang from its current leader. Daniel Wu and Eason Chan are great to watch with Karen Mok as the daughter of the rival gang leader who attempts to woo the real Georgie but to no avail. Stephen Fung himself makes for a good villain in the young auspicious rival gangster who has an agenda of his own. Some nice fight scenes, especially the climactic fight showcases Fung's abilities as Wu's training in wushu. A great directorial debut for Fung, whose career as a director has taken off since.
