Aces Go Places (1982)

I was expecting this movie to be about planes, but apparently I'd been totally misguided by the title.

It's a clever action comedy in good ol' Winners & Sinners style, with some crazy stunts, car chases and light-minded humor that'll leave you feeling like all is well, even when things are getting pretty chaotic within the movie. It's got that atmosphere that even when things are going real bad, it's not that bad. It's exciting, but not despairing. It's fun, but not hilarious. It's adventurous, but not epic. That said, it's a lot more creative than most modern movies of the sort!

All the way through, the main duo (an unlikely cop and robber-turned-cop, kinda) are moving from sketch to sketch, from drama to crisis to U-turns of events, and it never gets dull. There are a couple of females involved too, btw, so it should have something for everyone.

The main character is played by Samuel Hui, a very under-rated Jackie Chan-like type of guy who does some crazy things along the course of the film. The stunts are more dangerous than the movie makes them seem, another big difference between this and films of today... and I definitely like this type way better. All in all, lots of good fun!
