baby faced Chow Yun Fat (& yes, he pees on someone)
Like the other reviewers, I rented it for Chow Yun Fat. Granted he's not the main star (in fact he doesn't show up for the first 16 minutes) but he's one of the main cast.
The edition I saw was a very poor print quality, with terrible subtitles. The plot wasn't that great, nothing we haven't seen a million times. And since it's early HK action films there's not as much fighting and shooting as we've grown accustomed to.
However, if you're a dedicated fan of the genre or Chow Yun Fat - it's worth watching. Danny Lee has a nice early role too. It's fun to watch for the late 70's era Hong Kong. The hair! The clothes! The tiny brightly color cars! Plus the final scenes where it all comes to an end are amusing and fit the tragic noble cop movie genre quite well.
And I've never laughed so hard as when I realized I was watching Chow Yun Fat PEE on someone while laughing maniacally.
