the "two guns" classic, a Hong Kong ultra-violence movie
Hard Boiled Killers Taking the "eye by eye"philosophy as in Charles Bronson's Film,the "always firing and never reload the weapon" bug as Rambo and artistic concept of violence like "The Warriors" (but never so fine as "A Clockwork Orange"). Funny but bore. The action scenes are good, but there is no more. "hard boiled", probably because the first killings starts when a water heater with boiling water ready for tea is throwing and pouring over a man.
The real influence and fame was obtained because Yun-Fat Chow constantly fires two guns using both hands, an innovative performance in 1980,it will be very imitated after in movies and videogames.
