Bad guys turn hero

ROBIN-B-HOOD (Cine Asia, cert 15, £17.99)

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Books & Dvds -

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.

WIN IT: Which Three Men and a Baby star was a TV pri­vate eye? En­tries to Robin Comp.
