So, the old characters have been swapped for new ones (shame about that). It's now a set I seem to recognize from a bunch of other movies, and the budget level seems to have suddenly jumped pretty high.
The story this time around is simple. A gang boss in China sends his daughter to Hong Kong, to a friend over there (a local gang boss), his henchmen make sure she's at home and she falls in love with one of them (or maybe it's the other way around). However, she only speaks Chinese and he only speaks Korean, and the interpreter they hire doesn't always translate what she's told, first in fear of being killed, later on as a way of getting back at her initially probably very scary employers. So it's a story built for misinterpretations, and there's plenty of those, plenty of comedy, plenty of action. It's much more professional than the previous two, but still... something is missing.
Are the gangs too big? Not as personal as they used to be? Maybe it's the lack of understanding between the main two characters that make it feel like even at the end, when they marry, they still don't really know what's going on?
It's a worthy finale to the series, but personally I'd have liked it better if they all spoke the same language. Or maybe if they learned to speak the language along the way. Or maybe... it could've been revealed that one of the main characters actually did speak both languages but pretended not to understand. There's plenty of comedic potential there. Good movie, but it could have been much better. That, and I miss the old cast, somehow they seemed much more genuine.
rated 3/5: not bad
