YesAsia Editorial Description

The Hui Brothers were cultural icons in the 1970-80s Hong Kong and Michael Hui in particular was regarded as a trendsetter of Hong Kong cinema. The funny films he wrote, directed and starred in were huge hits both critically and commercially. In 1976, The Private Eyes went straight to the top of the year's box-office chart and proved the success of Michael's brand of deadpan comedy beginning with Games Gamblers Play (1974) and The Last Message (1975) was no fluke.

Produced by John Woo with action choreographed by Sammo Hung, the seminal laugh fest with biting social commentary concerns the hilarious exploits of private detective Si (Michael Hui) and his partner Kit (Sam Hui), and co-stars screen villain Shih Kien, beauty queen Angie Chiu, and famous actor Richard Ng. Perhaps even more popular than the film is the catchy theme song by Sam Hui, which stayed on to become an all-time classic of Canto-pop.

Product Information

Director : Michael Hui
Producer : Raymond Chow

Joseph Wong (Michael Hui), the kingpin of the Manix Private Detective Agency, a firm believer in tact and thrift. By tact, he means you can cheat all the people all the time and corners are there to be cut. By thrift, he means an underpaid staff is happy and grateful staff. By chance, he employs Lee Kwok Kit (Samuel Hui). Together, they have solved lots of wired cases. One day, while the two are investigating a blackmail case, the movie goes off and the lights come on. Scores of gun-toting hoods hold the more than 1,000 goers as hostages. On the stage Uncle Gaw (Shek Kin) threatens that it is a hold-up! Under such circumstance, what could the smart private eyes do......

Great Comedy Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
I guess this was their third film in the '70s. I like to see the Kung Fu jokes in this movie and the hilarious fight in the supermarket between Sam Hui and the shop-lifter; but the holdup scenes in the cinema is a little exaggerated.
