Customer Rating: Summary: 2 movies for the price of 1. My kind of deal! Comment: ROYAL TRAMP 1- Wong Jing's parody of the novel Duke of Mount Deer is a funny movie with some amazing wire fu action sequences. Stephen Chow stars as a man who is just an ordinary person surrounded by extremely powerful people. He is given a mission to steal a secret book, and it's a suicide mission. He has to steal it from an evil General played by Elvis Tsui. Chow fakes being a eunuch so that he can steal the book, but instead he accidentally becomes good friends with the Emperor. The group that sent Chow on the mission wants to kill the Emperor. Why am I trying to explain the story? Its probably the least important thing about this movie. Its all about the nonstop jokes and amazing wire fu action sequences. The fights have some crazy stuff going on. If you are a fan of wuxias then you are really gonna dig this. And the comedy is also very good. In the second half of the movie alone I remember laughing outloud at least 10 times. Its a crazy ride all the way through. Highly recommended to Stephen Chow fans. Rating- 3.5/5
ROYAL TRAMP 2- as expected, part 2 picks up where part 1 left off. Unforunately, it doesn't have the energy that part 1 has. I was very excited to see Brigitte Lin and Yen Shi Kwan have big roles, but with a boring story there isn't really much for them to do. It's not a bad movie, it just doesn't have nearly as many hilarious moments or amazing action scenes as part 1. The action scenes are once again creative, but I was disappointed that Yen Shi Kwan doesn't really get to do any fighting himself. 2.5/5
Picture and sound quality are good. Picture is kind of grainy, but not bad at all for a movie from 1992.
Only a couple of special features to speak of. Bey Logan gives a great commentary on part 1, and on part 2 he repeats himself quite a bit, but its still a good listen.
There is a 10 minute interview with Wong Jing that is interesting. This is only half of a 2 part interview, so I don't understand why Dragon Dynasty didn't put the other 10 minute interview on here. That's my only complaint about this release.
