Audience Member Wtf is this?!!! Awful!!! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Ridiculous madcap of the "superhero team" in this Hong Kong comedy film. I felt this is not a comedy because of lack laughs. Besides the iconic hairstyles, the cast also don ridiculous eyeglasses and weird wigs and make-up. The big-name cast, especially Karen Mok, are largely wasted in a movie that largely requires them to make a fool of themselves. Mok is supposed to be playing a woman who yearns for love and affection but is too shy to show it. However, she appears to be just clowning around in a meaningless role. Jaycee Chan has a cameo ostensibly to make fun of his father Jackie. Kenny Bee just looks lost throughout the movie while Ekin Cheng just look pathetic. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review mark b I ... er ... what ... I don't even know. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie is so f#clk up! It was amusing at first, then it became so disjointed that it was so confusing it makes your brain like a scrambled egg in trying to figure out what was happening. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member Funny, weird and entertaining. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member a Fantasy drama with some comedy elements. Has a kind spirit and good moral, not bad at all! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Read all reviews
