Hong Kong Legends in (another) misleading title shock!
Jack Lemmon fans need not get too excited, this Odd Couple is made up of Hong Kong’s premier bad haircut guru Sammo Hung and Skinny Tiger director Lau Kar-Wing. Two ageing masters of spear and sword decide to each train a student to champion their cause and finally settle their long-standing rivalry, but a twist of fate drives them into conflict with a powerful enemy, propelling both students and masters into the fight of their lives.
The Odd Couple has been described as “possibly the greatest classical weapons kung-fu movie ever made!” – but isn’t something similar said about every Sammo film these days? But we’ll see, anyway, when Sammo and Lau whip out their choppers and prepare for battle (Jeez, at this rate HKL are gonna exhaust my supply of swordplay innuendo for good!) on 7th March, with Hong Kong Legend’s DVD release of The Odd Couple, cert either 12 or 18, depending on who you believe.
