Following a sixteen-year stay in a Malaysian prison, Hong Kong gangster Lucifer (Francis Ng) gathers his old crew together for one last big heist. Disguised as police, Lucifer and his gang of four steal unused parts from abandoned police vans in order to create the perfect heist vehicle. Unfortunately for them, another team of robbers has the same plan in mind. When two fake police vans accidentally get into each other’s way, crossfire is inevitable. Brotherhood is also at stake, since Lucifer and his most trusted brother Chow Tai-po (Simon Yam) cannot agree on how to proceed. Will the gang of four save the day, or will their friendship falter in the face of danger?
Featuring our favourite Hong Kong actors Francis Ng, Simon Yam and Patrick Tam, Two Thumbs Up takes us for a wild ride and embodies the unique charm of Hong Kong action comedies. Get ready to be captivated by the chase, the suspense, and the ridiculous humour. -BX
