Here we have yet one more HK attempt at a Die
Hard type of film; this one taking place on a luxury passenger ship. It
stars Kenny Ho as the security guard who has to face off against a large
number of hijackers, Christy Chung
as a waitress/pickpocket with a heart of gold and Elaine Lui as the nastiest
villainess you will come across in a long while. The band of thieves is
after uranium that is for some bizarre reason being transported on board
and there is only Kenny & Christy to stop them.
Not great, not terrible - kind of cheap fun
with some good action fights from Kenny and a tasty turn from Elaine Lui
who kills randomly and with great gusto. Christy is so cute, but her acting
. .. lets just say it still needs some work. The main bad guy is played
by Ngai Sing
who has the great fight with Jet Li in The Bodyguard from Beijing. Definitely
a good if mindless romp.
