To plays Cho, a resourceful ex-cop who earns a living by claiming bounties offered for catching wanted persons. His latest job brings him to an isolated island for fugitive robber Fai, on whom the police have placed a hefty bounty of $400,000! During his investigation, Cho takes lodge at the small inn run by quirky innkeeper Suen (Alex Man) and his imaginative and perhaps a little too hyperactive daughter Ching (Fiona Sit), who are curious about this stranger.

September 3, 2012
A good screenwriter does not necessarily make a good director, but a screenwriter with a proven track record is more likely to get the head start. That's what drove Fung Chih Chiang to engage in scripting TV dramas and movies. Having long dreamed to be a director, the writer who counts Stephen Chow's Shaolin Soccer and CJ7 and Milkyway films like Johnnie To's Sparrow and Law Wing Cheong's Hooked on You on his curriculum vitae, took his time to learn the trade before he felt ready to make the jump.
Fung's first outing as a director is no masterpiece, but still capable enough to inspire interest in his next effort. Envisioned in the style of old-school Hong Kong comedies, The Bounty attempts to channel Stephen Chow (perhaps that's why Wen Chao is in the film?) and the Hui Brothers (Michael Hui nearly steals the show in his cameo appearance), and fortunately its hits outnumber the misses. The film shows flashes of brilliance in the script and especially the production design, but suffers from uneven pacing, with a strong first half that unfortunately loses steam in the second.
The story follows a bounty hunter (Chapman To) who comes to this small-town inn to find a fugitive that could net him some handsome money. He meets the quirky innkeeper (Alex Man) and his equally quirky daughter (Fiona Sit), among other townsfolk. Can he collect the bounty? Or will he end up with one on his head? The writer-director added a few subplots that don't really go anywhere. It would benefit the narrative if he cut down on some unnecessary secondary characters to focus on the main roles.
Fiona and Chapman are forging a delightful partnership through their frequent collaborations this year. Fiona is getting better with every role (besides, she bolsters the eye candy factor, too), while Chapman's exaggerated acting fits the film well. He also handles the action scenes admirably well. The biggest surprise though comes from Alex Man, a veteran actor known for his overacting. Absent on the screen for many years, he nonetheless makes a formidable comeback here, delivering in both the comedy and the drama, and single-handedly takes the film's emotional weight on his shoulder. This is a performance that could well earn him a nomination for Best Supporting Actor come award-giving time.
