Movie Info

Gen-X Cops star Stephen Fung makes his directorial debut with this action-comedy hybrid from Hong Kong. Frequent Jackie Chan collaborator Daniel Wu plays Georgie, the gay son of a triad king who has been chosen to take his father's place when he dies. However, the crime boss's man thinks that Georgie's roommate Sam (Eason Chan) is his leader's son, and Georgie is all too happy to play along. Being the top dog isn't easy, and soon Sam finds himself in danger.

Audience Reviews for Enter the Phoenix

½

The Hong Kong comedy-drama film's 'gay' element is basically a red herring, used as comic relief for the most part, and while some of the material borders on crude stereotype, Daniel Wu himself plays the central character with great dignity, reaffirming his status as a gay icon. Ultimately, however, the movie is uneven and disappointing, though redeemed by its energetic cast. If Stephen Fung can resist playing to the gallery in future, he might yet prove himself a director of note, far beyond the loyalty of his devoted fan base. It's still not perfect, like the ending (a fight scene) was cheesily, has in look fake, done.
