Don't get this one confused with the On Fire series
of films from Ringo Lam. No relation. Not even close. In fact, Lam should
have sued them for using the name. This film is that bad. One of the more
irritating HK films I have come across. It has a stupid beyond belief plot
in which everyone is yelling at each other all the time. Pass the aspirin,
This is somewhat surprising in that there is
some talent involved with this film Ė Clarence Ford as director (Naked
Killer, Iceman Cometh, Dragon from Russia) and Francoise Yip (Rumble in
the Bronx and Black Mask) and Louis Koo co-starring.
Briefly, Yip stars as herself. Yes she plays Francoise
Yip the glamorous and popular HK actress. Tough acting job. There are two
fans (Koo being one) who are infatuated with her and do everything they
can to get close to her. At one point they think they are becoming her
friends, but then a gang of thugs beats them up and warns them to stay
away from her. To get their revenge they kidnap Yip (with the help of poor
Ng Man Tat), but it turns out of course that she didnít order the beating.
And it just gets stupider.
To watch this film, you would have to be as infatuated
with Francoise as the two guys in the film. I mean she is very attractive,
but no one is good looking enough to sit through this one.
