North American Premiere
Q&A with Lau Ho-leung
Following a 16-year stretch in a Malaysian prison, Big F (Francis Ng) gathers his old crew together for one last heist. Their brilliant (if a bit deranged) plan? Steal parts from junker police vans, turn their minibus into a heist vehicle above the law, and rob Mainland corpses stuffed with cash that are being transported over the border. Only two problems: they weren’t the first to have this idea, and they are beginning to like being cops. Shoot-outs, bicycle chases, kidnappings, bowling, and cockroach infestations ensue. The cast is a who’s who of Hong Kong genre actors, and prolific screenwriter Lau Ho-leung’s directorial debut is stylish and fun. This is the type of movie that made audiences fall in love with Hong Kong films in the first place.
Presented with the support of Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office New York.
