Plot: War veteran Lao San (Liu Ye) suffered brain damage during marine training, and has remained an optimistic innocent. He finds self-worth in battling the dark side of the society. By chance he thwarts a robbery ordered by HK gang boss Brother Rong (Anthony Wong), and gets involved in a battle of wits and fists between cops and robbers.
«A genre-bending mix of psychodrama, action movie, black comedy and aspirational drama, this sophomore outing by writer-director Ding Sheng works primarily due to an utterly convinced perf by young actor Liu Ye as the wacko modern-day knight errant.»
«There are maybe one or two effective movies in Underdog Knight, but as is, none of them are more than generic. ... The Underdog Knight still works as minor entertainment, though some of that entertainment is unintentionally derived from the odd nature of the production. ... The best thing about The Underdog Knight is probably Liu Ye's intense performance as Wang Tao.»
