HANDSOME SIBLINGS is a chaotic adaptation of a wuxia novel that was previously adapted by Shaw under the title THE PROUD TWINS. Andy Lau plays the offspring of criminal parents who heads off to a martial arts tournament and finds himself falling in love with femme fatale Brigitte Lin. It's a cheap and cheerful affair, lacking a single decent kung fu fight (despite former Venom Phillip Kwok supplying the choreography) but with plenty of outlandish effects and wirework battles that defy the laws of gravity. Eric Tsang is at the helm here and plays up comedy over realism, and as ever it's a delight to see the likes of Richard Ng, Francis Ng, Wong Yu and Shing Fui-On appear in supporting roles of varying size.
Durring the Tang Dynasty, a kung-fu tournament was held once every 18 years with the winner declared the leader of the land until the next competition. But a tournament with such high stakes brings out the best, and worst, in the various competitors and leaders.
