YesAsia Editorial Description

Francis Ng and Ronald Cheng team up to deliver big laughs in the comedy House of Wolves from director Vincent Kok (Hello Babies). The two stars play backwaters "bad guys" competing for the affections of a mysterious woman who may be even craftier than them!

Charlie (Francis Ng) invites sympathy with his disability and dog charity home, but it's actually all a shameless act to con money. Bing (Ronald Cheng) is the cocky chief of the village, but he does little work and throws his weight around like a bully. Both of them fall head over heels for their village's newest resident, Jane (Maggie Jiang Shuying, So Young), who is hiding from her rich boyfriend. Already expecting, Jane tricks Charlie and Bing into believing that one of them is her baby's father.

Professional Review of "House of Wolves (2016) (Blu-ray) (Hong Kong Version)"

August 19, 2016

Top Hong Kong stars Francis Ng (Triumph in the Skies) and Ronald Cheng (Vulgaria) headline House of Wolves, directed by Vincent Kok, an instantly recognisable character actor who also helmed the likes of Hello Babies and Love is...Pyjamas. Ng and Cheng are joined by Maggie Jiang (So Young) and Derek Tsang (From Vegas to Macau III) for a daft tale of two lowdown scam artists who meet their match and run into problems when they butt heads over a woman.

Set in a small rural village in Hong Kong's New Territories, the film sees Ng as Charlie, a conman who pretends to suffer from motor neurone disease and who runs a dog charity as a front for trying to meet and swindle women. The village head Bing (Cheng), isn't much better, being a lazy bully who spends his time pushing people around and generally being as obnoxious as possible. The two come up against each other when they both fall for newcomer Jane (Maggie Jiang), a beautiful novelist who comes to the village to hide from her rich though unpleasant boyfriend Steve (Derek Tsang). Though Charlie and Bing outdo each other in their efforts to woo her, Jane has a secret of her own, and matters get more and more complicated as the trio become closer.

Although the above might sound like a plot, it's really more of a sketch, House of Wolves being very much an old-fashioned Hong Kong mo lei tau or Lunar New Year style nonsense comedy, with logic and coherence going out the window early on. For fans this is certainly good news, and though Vincent Kok doesn't try anything innovative, he’s comfortable and confident working with the form, keeping things lively, fast and manic. While the jokes are mostly cheap shots, revolving around toilet humour, slapstick and mugging for the camera, they're delivered with enthusiasm and energy, and the film is genuinely funny in places, delivering a higher gag hit ratio than average. This serves well to help distract from the film's shoddy storytelling, which is fractured and scattershot even by the standards of the genre, the lack of focus and many pointless tangents that the script lunges off on making it hard for the viewer to ever feel particularly engaged.

Francis Ng and Ronald Cheng really go all-out, giving great value for money with their amusing and likeable performances, both seeming to have had a lot of fun with their would-be bad guy roles. There's an enjoyable dynamic between the dunderhead duo, with lots of banter and bickering throughout, and Kok successfully combines their considerable comedic talents to occasionally great effect. While there's nothing new from either actor, both playing precisely the kind of parts they've taken on countless times in the past, the two are on fine and playful form, adding a welcome infectious sense of merriment to the proceedings. Maggie Jiang, arguably the best thing about So Young, also impresses, and is thankfully given more to do than providing mere eye candy or an objection of affection for the male leads, her character having a few semi-interesting twists along the way. The film similarly benefits from appearances by a number of well-known Hong Kong faces, including Josie Ho (Dream Home), Ella Koon (Here Comes Fortune), Sam Lee (Wild City) and others, giving it a comfortable air of familiarity.

Whilst unlikely to be appearing on any end of year best film lists, House of Wolves is nevertheless a perfectly acceptable time-waster, and above average for Hong Kong nonsense comedy. Viewers content with watching Francis Ng and Ronald Cheng in full on madcap mode definitely won't feel short-changed, and the film is easily one of Vincent Kok's better offerings.
