Movie Review: Buddy Cops (NC16)
If you're a fan of odd-couple buddy cop movies in the vein of Rush Hour and Lethal Weapon, you'll love this new Hong Kong action comedy.
Two cops - brash, rough-talking Fei (Bosco Wong) and slightly effeminate Johnny (Taiwanese comedian King Kong) - are perpetually at loggerheads and cannot stand the sight of each other.
Both come from single-parent families and in a twist of fate, Fei's dad and Johnny's mum end up marrying each other and the two "brothers" are forced to live in the same house. The duo also find themselves investigating a murder case together.
While Buddy Cops' script is lacklustre at best, it is saved by excellent chemistry between Wong and King Kong.
