Super Car Criminals
Year: 2000 "I never should have made this film. Shoot me, dammit!"
Jackie Ma, Roy Cheung, Simon Lui and Michael Wong
Director: Ricky Lau Koon-Wai
Cast: Michael Wong Mun-Tak, Louis Koo Tin-Lok, Simon Lui Yu-Yeung, Roy Cheung Yiu-Yeung, Yoyo Mung Ka-Wai, Sherming Yiu Lok-Yi, Paul Chun Pui, Wong Chi-Yeung, Jackie Ma Hok-Ming
The Skinny: Super Crap Criminals. Louis Koo is wasted in this useless crime drama, which features some decent names but little in the way of actual filmmaking.
Review
by Kozo:
     Unfortunate film that looks promising, but pretty much heads nowhere. Ricky Lau directed this poor excuse for a Hong Kong flick starring two men with careers heading in opposite directions. The rising Louis Koo is an undercover cop while the falling Michael Wong is the head of a car heist gang. Koo joins Wong's gang by impressing him with his keen fighting skills, but he soon comes to question his allegiances as Wong is one of those "honorable" thief types. His honor even extends to his business, as he attempts righteousness despite the fact that he steals cars for a living. Still, righteousness can't solve his problems because he's dealing with all sorts of seedy characters, which means double-crosses and rivals aplenty. Meanwhile, producer Jackie Ma shows up to annoy us with his obvious lack of any real acting talent. The charismatic Louis Koo wastes his talents in this stinker, as do the likes of Roy Cheung, Yoyo Mung and Paul Chun. The same goes for Michael Wong, who deserves better than this despite his obvious acting limitations. (Kozo 2000)
