There's a lot to fault in Mr. Nice Guy - the plot is execrable, the acting appalling, and much of the comedy wouldn't be out of place in an episode of The Benny Hill Show (yes, that's a fault). What redeems it - slightly - is some great action scenes from Sammo & Jackie. It's all very familiar, much of it rehashed from earlier Jackie films, but still executed with his inimitable skill and style, and on a relatively high budget. It's thoroughly shallow and disposable, but provided you don't try and take it seriously - think of it as a kid's film, perhaps - it's not unpleasant to watch.
