Uhm, what?
11 April 2018 | by dafrostsSee all my reviews

This has some great fight scenes. Lo Meng, as usual, is amazing. Johnny Wang Lung Wei as the villain (?) also has some good scenes. The plot is all over the map. Wang Yu has some good funny scenes, which are to be expected from him. I don't not understand the ending at all. There was an obvious mission to be completed, but the movie ends absurdly. I would only recommend this for diehard fans of Lo Meng, Wang Yu and Johnny Wang Lung Wei willing to watch ANYTHING in which these men appear. Otherwise...re-watching a Venom movie is a better idea.
