Editor’s Review of The Deadly Duo – Score 7/10
The Lucky Guy is a delightful comedy light on content but delightful to watch with excellent performances by stars Stephen Chow, Ng Man-tat and Shu Qi (one of her first major roles). The satire in The Lucky Guy is well done and enables the movie to be refreshing and well as fun to watch.
