Karl Maka and the magnificent Sammo Hung play Skinny and Fatty, respectively. Two dedicated Hong Kong cops out to nail a drug kingpin. Though they have the best intentions, their inability to follow procedure would make the L.A.P.D. cringe. Their efficiency in infuriating their superior officers and beating the tar out of suspects, however, is unparalleled.
There's not much else to explain as far as plot. Just shenanigans and fights, really. There is more to it but I'm certainly not going to get into it! The important thing to remember is that a lot of the gags are actually funny and that ALL of the fights are good. Karl Maka doesn't perform any real martial arts, but handles himself very well and is believable. Sammo, on the other hand, is a spin-kicking machine! I've ALWAYS been impressed by his size-to-athleticism ratio and, having an idea of what to expect, was still surprised! He lays off the acrobatics of his younger days but leaves no doubt he could still perform them if called upon! And yes, this is one of the films where Sammo adopts a handful of Bruce Lee mannerisms, first exhibited in "Enter the Fat Dragon" (1978).
The DVD from Mei Ah Entertainment has good picture quality but NO English dub or special features. The language selection consists of Cantonese or Mandarin with subtitles available in Chinese (traditional or simplified) and English. If you enjoy martial arts films in general and Sammo Hung films in particular then this is for you! Lacks only a good, lengthy one-on-one fight. Otherwise, pretty groovy and recommended.
