The Eight Immortals Restaurant: The Untold Story [Bat sin fan dim: Yan yuk cha siu bau]

A nasty, sordid tale that holds no real surprises and tries to compensate by presenting everything as graphically as possible, which is no compensation at all.


  1. Based on a true story, this was a strange mix of daft slapstick comedy in the Police Academy mold and brutal violence. The Macau police grind their way to a conclusion they would have arrived at much quicker if they didn't spend so much time dicking about.

  2. Deeply nasty and stupid. I enjoyed it :)

  3. If I hadn't seen Ebola Syndrome last year it would be in my top 3 of JF15.
