Benny Chan’s latest offering, Invisible Target, uses every cliché in the book—but in a good way. He proudly embraces them, from caricaturish villains to the callous, cool cops. The real pleasures, though, are the utterly reckless car chases and fight scenes, all special effects-free.
See Jackie Chan go “goo goo ga ga” with a baby. See Jackie Chan and co-star Louis Koo get baby poo poo on their faces. Now watch them suck on baby bottles together. Go on, laugh. See that baby smile. Get ready for the close-up…altogether now, awwww. If this is what passes for a heartwarming local comedy by the city’s leading actor, no wonder our local film industry is in deep doo doo.
