to hell with the devil

the bedazzling of ricky...


bruce lee (ricky hui) is a down on his luck song writer, who is going nowhere fast. flit (stanley fung) works for the devil (chung faat) and is under some considerable pressure to harvest some more souls for his master. he sees bruce as an easy target, and, he's right; bruce quickly gives up his soul in exchange for three wishes, but he soon discovers that things never seem to turn out as he thinks they will. luckily for bruce, reverend ma (paul chun) - an alcoholic priest who dies, but is sent back to earth to redeem himself by go - is at hand to help him rescue his lost soul...

yep, another whacked out, bizarre and very silly john woo comedy. this one hits as much as it misses, on the comedy front, but the nuttiness that permeates it is enough to inspire you getting through it. there's a touch of 'bedazzled', which is no bad thing, and a crazy space invaders style good vs evil showdown to finish things off. some fun special effects add a little gloss...

nutty...

the dvd is hk$35 from buyoyo.com
