Touch and Go- 一觸即發 (1991)

TOUCH AND GO aka POINT OF NO RETURN (1991)
-
Poster for the underwhelming, from what I remember (which isn't much), Sammo Hung Kam-bo-Teresa Mo Sun-kwan action film, TOUCH AND GO.  The usual mad dog style director Ringo Lam tries to compromise his style with that of the rotund one and the outcome is a somewhat entertaining mix of excitement and guffaws.  While not quite near the top of either man's best vehicles, Ringo and Sammo are a fair match made in HK cinema heaven and Ringo is still able to imbue the film with an edge while letting Sammo do what he does best, be chunky and chuckle inducing. Far from a classic but a solid watch.

  1. I was pretty surprised by how watchable this film was. Some good action, solid story and a pretty good performance from "rotund one".
