Director and action legend Sammo Hung aims to make fools of no one on April 1. His newest film has since changed only in-name in recent weeks to My Beloved Bodyguard and still boasts a worthwhile package to feed hungry fans of martial arts with Hung front and center.
My Beloved Bodyguard follows a retired bodyguard (Hung) who has settled in the dark and unknown corner of the world where China, Russia and North Korea meet. Suffering from the beginnings of dementia, the bodyguard is befriended by a young girl whose life is threatened when her father (Lau) falls in with the local crime world. When the girl and her father disappear, the bodyguard must call upon his long forgotten skills to save the life of his young friend.
