The Skinny: Pretty people, bad movie.
by Kozo:
     The other Aces Go Places update from 1997 is a more enjoyable, but just as inconsequential piece of fluffy entertainment. Ekin Cheng is Plane, a troubled cop who hits the skids when his girlfriend Carrie (Gigi Leung) gets killed by a stoic hitman named Angel (Alex Fong). 
     One year later he finds himself saddled with new partner Turkey (Jordan Chan), an immature cop who’s in love with up-and-coming idol singer Siu Lin (Vivian Hsu). Turkey also has a wacky father (Law Kar-Ying) who thinks he’s James Bond and has tons of gadgets to prove it. There are the usual growing pains as the two partners learn to like and trust one another. Then things go bad when Angel returns to settle some scores. Figuring into this is Siu Lin, who catches a glimpse of Angel’s face. Frightened, she enlists the help of computer expert Mandy. 
     Here’s the deux ex machina: Mandy is a dead ringer for Carrie, and Plane falls head over heels as he discovers that Mandy is his 100% girl. What that means is that she’s everything Carrie was, and even more. Oh, and Turkey and Siu Lin get it on.
     There are so many good looking people in this film that it borders on the obscene. They’re all marginally charming, but the film is so uneven that it deep-sixes whatever charm the stars provide. Wong Jing tones his usual sophomoric direction down, but nonsensical is still is middle name. 
     The best thing about this flick is Alex Fong, who’s terrific as Angel, but there really isn’t much else to this film than simple idol worship of the photogenic stars. The film provides that in spades, but sadly that isn’t enough to make a movie. Perhaps this movie will best be remembered as the film where Jordan Chan and Ekin Cheng say "I Love You," to each other. Those wacky fellows. (
