Aces Go Places aka Mad Mission (1982)

Expert jewel thief King Kong is forced to join forces with an American detective Albert "Baldy" Au to thwart a diamond heist being orchestrated by White Glove.

6/10

Lively action comedy with lots to like including an athletic lead (reminiscent of Jackie Chan thanks to the haircut and tone of the film), some good action moments and an infectious sense of fun. While Chinese comedy frequently doesn’t travel, Aces Go Places is successful more often than not with most jokes not stretched past breaking point. Special mention for a mighty elevator gag: "Doesn’t this lift seem a bit small?" (the three walls of the elevator are three guys holding massive mirrors; brilliantly unexpected).
