Action comedy THE BOUNTY (YUEN HUNG) will open on June 21. This film's director Fung Chi Chiang wrote many film scripts including SHAOLIN SOCCER, HOOKED ON YOU (MUI DONG BIN WAN SI), 2 BECOME 1 (TIN SUN YUT DUI), SPARROW (MAN JEUK), CJ 7 (CHEUNG GONG CHUT HO) and others. This time he asked many friends who he has worked with before to guest star like Eric Kot Man Fai, Raymond Wong Ho Yin and Stephanie Cheng Yung.
Lead actor Chapman To Man Jat played a retired cop who makes a living as a bounty hunter. In order to capture the culprit before the police, he often had to fight alone. Thus the film had many fight scenes. In one scene Ah Jat was bringing a fugitive with a 400,000 bounty to the police station. On the way he witnessed another smuggling case taking place and the smuggler was about to kill the witness and fought with To. Luckily detective Kot Man Fai led a group of police officers to stop the murder in time.
Ah Kot rarely exercised before. Only in recent years did he begin to pay attention to his health. Recently he even fell in love with bicycle riding. On the day of the shoot, Ah Kot had to chase the crook. Although he was in full police gear, he was still very agile. He jumped right off a tall rock with one leap while keeping his funny side. Yet because the extras were too careful, they looked stiff and needed many more takes. Ah Kot performed several times without getting dizzy. He joked, "You don't know you are health without jumping."
