The Skinny: Hong Kong/Philippines remake of The Fugitive. Yuen Biao continues his unfortunate downward spiral.
by Kozo:

Cheap knock-off of The Fugitive from obvious Filipino investors stars Yuen Biao as a security guard who’s framed for murder and escapes to clear his name. Zhang Feng-Yi of Farewell My Concubine slums as the cop chasing him down. This is an average production with simply awful Filipino lead actors in addition to Yuen Biao and Zhang Feng-Yi, who deserves better than stuff like this. Jessica Suen is on board as Yuen’s ex-wife.

Some stunts are good, but there are some obvious stunt doubles and safety measures that give this film the “shot in four days” look. Note to filmmakers: when staging jumps from rooftop to rooftop, make sure to hide the safety mats. Also, the film has the worst dubbing ever, and some nonsensical scenes to boot. They have a translator between the Chinese and Filipinos to facilitate communication, but later everyone starts speaking Cantonese. How? On a positive note, the Crazy Mustache Guy (Chung Fat) from Yes, Madam! returns. We applaud his longevity. (Kozo 1997)
