Review

When I was watched the opening of the movie, I thought I’m in the wrong movie. Everything seem so cheerful – the simple kiddish illustration, the narration sharing the background of the bodyguard. Little do I know that the rest of the show will cover a lot of brutal, violence fighting screen.

Was a bit disappointed at my idol Andy Lau’s short appearance in the show, was expecting more of him in the show.

Personally, I am not a super fan for action show, so I’m glad on the numerous funny scenes that lighten up the atmosphere of the show.

Those who like action movies should like the show, although the bodyguard played by Sammo Hung is old, he managed to show off a lot of martial art steps in his fighting screens.
