| Hail The Judge (1994)
Director: Wong Jing
Chow, Ng Man Tat, Cheung Man
A nicely wrought judicial procedural full of
trademark Stephen Chow/Wong Jing wackiness, with the whole Chow crew on
board. Chow plays a corrupt descendant of the famous Judge Pao, who's
hated by his townspeople until his just nature is brought out by the
plight of Cheung Man, a newlywed who's the sole survivor of a massacre.
Nice performances, and an almost believable turning-of-the-tale by Chow,
acting as judge, jury, detective, and executioner. Good stuff for Chow
fans, though you'll wince at the abuse that Cheung Man puts up with.
