Benchmark when it comes to silly comedy and parody. Lau's films are a bit hit-and-miss, but throughout his career he made enough good films to warrant a deeper inspection of his oeuvre. That is, if you can deal with his typical Hong Kong sense of humor.

The good stuff

Bonkers Hong Kong comedy. I do have to admit I liked it better the first time around, the film is kinda sloppy in its execution. Still, the pacing is insane, the jokes are crazy and Lau drummed up some familiar faces who have no problem making a complete fool out of themselves.

Jeffrey Lau is back and he's still doing the kind of comedy that made him famous. This time around we're getting a Grandmasters parody, with 4 of Hong Kong's prime martial arts talents reuniting in the present and kicking some ass for the kid that summoned him. It's silly, it's a bit random, but it's entertaining.
