Aces Go Places III
(SCM Legend, HypptV Ch 226, 10pm) Grab a few vodka martinis and prepare to have everything you love about the James bond movies shaken up, in this 1980s HK comedy caper. It spoofs the 007 movies so intensely that it even has richard Kiel, an Oddjob lookalike and Sean Connery’s brother appearing, along with Mission: Impossible’s Peter Graves! King Kong (Sam Hui) is duped into committing a major crime by lookalikes of the Queen of england and James bond. He drags his old pal baldy/ Kodojak/ albert au/ whatever-the-heck-his-name-is (Karl Maka) out of retirement, to pull off the heist, before realising that they’ve erred ... greatly. this tsui Hark film co-stars Sylvia Chang and has numerous cameos, including one by Hark himself.
