Review
by Kozo:

This action-comedy from director Eric Tsang features Andy Lau and Tony Leung Chiu-Wai as two Special Squad recruits who go undercover in a gun-running triad. Or that's what they say the movie is about. In reality, this movie is nothing more than a loosely connected series of gags and bad acting, with boring patches of nonsensical silliness as filler. The first half of the film is a Police Academy ripoff with the two stars as jokey recruits. The high point of this section: a trip to a karaoke club. Everyone clap politely.

The second half of the film features Andy Lau romancing his triad bossí sister, Fennie Yuen. Naturally Andy begins to question his loyalties, but it matters not. That's because this movie is crap! Come Fly the Dragon is actual proof that Hong Kong's best (i.e., Tony Leung Chiu-Wai) can make crap, and unwatchable, annoying crap at that. Amazingly, there is a not a charming moment anywhere in this film. I would recommend that you avoid it, but if you must watch it then go right ahead. Just don't come crying to me about your lost $3 rental fee. And the extra $7 in late fees. (Kozo 1997)
