Aside from being a long weekend filled with crime and punishment, it was also a semi-Charlie Cho affair for me. I’m embarrassed to say that I failed to mention that the cock meister himself plays a small but memorable role in Punished. Looking a little older and heavier, Cho does a great job playing it straight and manages to even infuse the film with some much needed humanity.
Now that we have gotten the good out of the way lets talk about Charlie in The Case of the Spirit of Banana. Terrible doesn’t come close to describing this turd of a movie. Not even the presence of my favourite Alex Man can save this sinking ship of a mess. I was looking forward to Charlie and The Man playing a pair of gigolos hitting up various nightclubs in Hong Kong but what I got instead was a supernatural piece of poo.
There, are you happy now Kingwho? ?
