The first production of D & B founded by Sammo Hung and John Sham, is a sequel to the box-office hit Pom Pom (1984), which starred Sham himself alongside Richard Ng Yiu-hon following their success in Winners & Sinners (1983). Sham and Ng continue to display their fun chemistry as a pair of cops who are as close as brothers despite mismatched personalities. They work seamlessly but fight against each other at times, mixing action, comedy, slapstick, and even romance into one. The romantic sub-plot between Sham and Kara Wai, the daughter of the notorious thief whom the duo is set to track down, creates a strong dramatic effect that draws the audience in, guaranteeing another triumph at the box office.
