People aren't beating up rivals to claim back turfs like they did in the 1980s and 1990s -- instead they are focused on doing whatever it takes to make a living, from prostituting themselves to procuring Hermes bags for clients' wives to scalping concert tickets.
In one scene Gordon is out on a "job" protesting against the government, but his underling is on the other side supporting the ruling administration at a rally. Gordon gets mad at him and tries to beat him up -- but his "younger brother" tries to explain that one shouldn't take sides seriously -- everyone's just showing up because they'll get paid.
One character figures out the most cost-effective way to make a living -- be a Legislative Councillor, show up at a few meetings and then five minutes later start throwing things at the chief executive so you get hauled out -- for HK$80,000 a month. Pretty good salary for not much work, right?
The movie isn't meant to be completely polished, while the cameos by celebrities are quite funny -- and apparently even funnier if you've watched all three Golden Chicken movies.
Golden Chickensss wasn't completely brainless entertainment -- it does have some poignant scenes and puts things into perspective -- in a farcical way.
