The storyline is kinda predictable, nothing special seriously. The most exciting part will be the fighting action part, it was carried out mostly by Ekin & Tony throughout the movie. For me, Kelly Chen is really an extra of this movie, i believe any actress can take her part if it weren't of her fame...

This is kinda different from Sammi's previous movie. Not much comedy from her side but Nick express most of it. The storyline is not bad and very special, love the part when Sammi cry and express her love towards her ex husband to Nick.
