Audience Reviews for Daai laap mat taam 008 (Forbidden City Cop)


There's a bit of that insanely hilarious, 4th-wall breaking genius that Western fans know from Shaolin Soccer and Kung Fu Hustle, especially toward the end, but for the most part this movie comes off like many of Chow's older films - without the benefit of understanding the clever nuances of the dialogue, all that's left is a cheesy romp that won't likely be revisited.

It's safe to say a ton of the jokes get lost in translation, others will appeal only to wuxia fans. Not bad but Stephen has done way better stuff.

I didn't quite like it when watching in theatre back then. After cable's repeatedly broadcasting in a brain wash way, I began loving it.
