Big Boss Untouchable
Hong Kong 2003
Directed by Kant Leung.


It's 2003 and people are still trying to imitate Bruce Lee. Come on, people, get a hobby. This time Dragon Sek does his best Lee while costar Karen Cheung tries her hand at imitating Angela Mao. Both the leads have some charisma, if they weren't so busy imitating, they might've had a shot at some actual acting. The kung fu on display is passable but not very inventive, and each hit throws enough talcom powder into the air as to nearly blot out the sun. They get beat up a lot, but they are all as dry as a baby's bottom. The story concerns a noble, upright kung fu hero whose fiance is kidnapped, and her mother killed, by evil Big Boss Ben Ng. Our hero works a restaurant owned by the Angela Mao impersonator while he searches for his beloved. The only almost interesting relationship comes in the form of two street performers, who had befriended our heroes, but take up with the villain for money. Set in 1930s Shanghai. Shot on video, and unusually for a video production, not in synch sound, so not only is the video quality terrible, the audio is worse.
