From Beijing with Love (1994)

A Chinese comedy directed by Stephen Chow and Lee Lik-Chi.
A butcher is sent on a spy mission when his paperwork is found in the garbage. His contact in Hong Kong is supposed to kill him, but never manages to. The real antagonist is a man with a powerful gun and impenetrable armor who has stolen a T-Rex skull.
This was a very Chow film. The absurd humor is really funny to me. The plot and characters were all spoofs on James Bond films as well as most of the jokes. I think the funniest was the multitude of razors and hair-dryers the hero was equipped with. There was some creative editing and standard special effects, but nothing near Chow's later films. Overall, this is comedy that I get. I'm rating it good.
