Lau Ching-Wan is Kau, a 32 year old, small-time rascal who’s hounded by fellow rascal Bo to go along on a crime-trip to Central China with a gang Bo has recently put together. However, Kau has recently had his fortune told, and the prediction was that he would soon be asked to go to either Taiwan or Central China. Depending upon his choice, Kau’s life could take either of two turns: good or bad.
Too Many Ways shows us what would happen with each choice. —City on Fire

Stands proudly alongside some of To's best films. Wai Ka-Fai has always been essential to Milkyway, but even as sole director he can rock harder than most. I'm still under the influence of post-great-movie-giddiness, but I'm confident Too Many Ways to Be No.1 will remain one of my all-time comedy favorite. Excuse my fanboism.
