When a series of eerie murders erupt across Hong Kong, two troublemaking cops are assigned to the case. Young maverick Wang (Zhang Wen) is a reckless risk-taker, and grizzled vet Huang (Jet Li) is fed up with cleaning up his rookie's messes. After discovering all the victims were former boyfriends of aspiring starlet Liu, the detectives (one now posing as her lover) are caught in a deadly game to lure the killer out.

A police comedy, part slapstick, set in Hong Kong with the classic Hong Kong flavor, so it is funny at quite a few points [I especially liked the corny janitor joke]. Featuring talented actress, Michelle Chen, from Taiwan [Republic of China] - - who gives a fine comedic performance, plus actress Liu Yan, whose every appearance on screen was a pleasant experience.
The martial arts are part of the slapstick comedy, so the Chinese school of theatrical martial arts was acceptable in this context. [Always detest this form: physics-impossible forward motion backflips, flying and the chronic forward strike/stop action -- or pause -- allowing the opponent to catch and hold, or trap, when normally one would immediately retract one's arm or leg -- probably one of the many reasons why Bruce Lee's entirely different on-screen fighting style was so insanely popular in Hong Kong when it first hit the theaters there.]
Jet Li does comedy well.

Watchable, but actions for Jet Li is not as great as his other movies.

I liked this film. It was pretty funny watching Chines folks bitching at each other. I especially like their casting of the "crazy beast dude" from "Kung Fu Hustle" (I always wondered what happened to that guy).

A few times this was funny, but mostly cheesy slapstick comedy (some of the sound effects were just too much); dragged on a little too long. Jet Li was present, but was not really the star of this. This wasn't a martial arts flick; the fights were just too fake, and as a comedy it was pretty lame, but still it was fun to watch Michelle Chen, Cecilia Liu and Ada Yan eat up the screen.
