| Also two thumbs up from me...
For me it was quite a thrill to find the 2015 movie "Two Thumbs Up" (aka "Chung fung che"), especially since I wasn't even familiar of its existence. But more so, it was quite a thrill to return to the Hong Kong cinema with a movie such as this and with both Francis Ng and Simon Yam at the helm.

Director and writer Ho Leung Lau managed to create something quite entertaining here with "Two Thumbs Up". And while it perhaps wasn't the most original of scripts, it sure was an entertaining one.

The story is about a criminal fresh out of prison who seeks out his former partners in crime for another heist. And they make a very elaborate plan to carry out the criminal intent, but things turn awry when another gang of criminals hit the same target.

There is a good amount of action, storytelling and actually also some comedy in this movie. Luckily the comedy is subtle and kept to a minimum, otherwise this would have been a whole different movie entirely. It is this good combination of elements that make the story interesting and fast paced.

But a lot of credit should also go to the cast of the movie. The people hired to portray the various roles and characters were doing great jobs with their given roles. I was especially impressed with Hong Kong heavy weighters Franic Ng and Simon Yam, and you know that they will give you your money's worth of entertainment, and they didn't fail to deliver in "Two Thumbs Up".

If you enjoy the Hong Kong cinema, then you should really take the time to sit down and watch "Two Thumbs Up", because it feels like a grand return to the golden age of Hong Kong action movies, when John Woo was the pinnacle of Hong Kong action cinema.
