Bad guys turn hero
ROBIN-B-HOOD (Cine Asia, cert 15, £17.99)
NO Russell Crowe, and the setting’s nearer Hong Kong than Nottingham, as Jackie Chan goes slapstick in the manner of Arnie looking after a kindergarten or The Rock becoming a tooth fairy. Jackie plays Fong, a burglar whose life of crime is turned upside down when he and pals Landlord (Michael Hui) and Octopus (Louis Koo) accept a kidnapping assignment from an eccentric underworld tycoon. When it turns out to involve a baby the criminals turn heroes as they seek to return the child to safety, but that means evading the cops, fending off the mob and dealing with dirty nappies! Of course, like Three Man And A Baby, these guys haven’t a clue about childcare. Cracking fights too.
