YesAsia Editorial Description
The story of rich kid Lee Mong Fong becoming entangled in a driving penalty points scandal has become an overnight sensation in Hong Kong. For some reason, the incident's only witness Meng Tzi Leung (Mark Wu) refuses to cooperate with the police. Knowing his longtime friend is hiding something, detective Lau Mong Long (Ronald Cheng) goes undercover to investigate. Meanwhile, Leung is working hard for his younger sister, who is going blind. Her only wish is to witness her brother achieve his dream of becoming a star before she loses her sight completely. Out of nowhere, a renowned director invites Leung to work with him in an overseas production, but the filming date rather suspiciously falls on the same day Leung is due to appear in court as a witness...

Professional Review of "Undercover Duet (2015) (DVD) (Hong Kong Version)"
This professional review refers to Undercover Duet (2015) (Blu-ray) (Hong Kong Version)
Although more than a decade has passed since its original release, Hong Kong cinema never seems to get tired of spoofing Infernal Affairs, continuing to churn out comedy takes on the undercover cop theme. Undercover Duet is the latest of these, written, directed and co-headlined by Mark Wu, who also helmed the somewhat amusing Due West: Our Sex Journey back in 2012. Sharing lead duties with Wu is top comedian Ronald Cheng (Golden Chickensss), for a familiar buddy style tale with all the expected wackiness and tomfoolery.
The film opens with Wu as overweight and fame-hungry film extra called James, who finds himself the only witness to a hit and run incident involving a rich tycoon’s son in Hong Kong, though who decides not to cooperate with the police. Assigned to the case is undercover officer D Dragon (Ronald Cheng), James' childhood friend, who works his way back into his life to try and investigate, following him as he unexpectedly gets selected for the Man of China reality television show. With James' vision-impaired sister Kwan (Ava Yu, Natural Born Lovers) in tow, D Dragon tries to get to the bottom of things while protecting him from thugs, killers, and his own stupidity.
Unsurprisingly, Undercover Duet is a deeply daft throwback of a film, with a scattershot plot that sprints off on tangents at the drop of the hat and sudden shifts in tone throughout. Although Mark Wu's script pays lip service to issues of social justice and inequality, the focus here is very much on lowbrow and slapstick humour, with the foolishness coming thick and fast in a manner which at least kind of resembles the old school Hong Kong nonsense style. While at nearly two hours the film is undeniably overlong, it's for the most part pretty funny, at least for viewers who enjoy this kind of thing, and a respectable number of its cheap jokes hit home. Pop culture references abound, and though a fair few of these will likely be lost on non-local audiences, Wu takes a stab at universal zeitgeist humour, including a running Michael Bay and Transformers gag that should raise a smile. It's all very good natured and unpretentious, and though the director himself doesn't quite have the necessary charisma of a comedy lead, Ronald Cheng is on great form, clearly having fun with his role and with half his dialogue being delivered in amusing mock-gangsta English (strangely, his near-constant English language swearing is rarely included in the subtitles).
The film does get more serious as it goes on, and the action quotient starts to rise after things move to the Mainland, Wu throwing in a number of chases and fight scenes. Although not exactly Bad Boys, the film is surprisingly effective in delivering the thrills, with some well-choreographed set pieces helping to pick up the pace and helping to distract from a couple of wholly unnecessary sappy montage sequences that come complete with pop ballads and clichéd slow motion angst.
Though not quite enough to make Undercover Duet actually exciting, these combine well with the earlier comedy to make it a decent amount of fun, and a perfectly acceptable time-waster for fans of the form. Boosted considerably by Ronald Cheng's over the top and foul-mouthed performance, the film is more enjoyable than might be expected, and one of the better Hong Kong action comedies of late, standing out somewhat from an admittedly shabby playing field.
