BEST TO PASS IT BY
30 January 2004 | by (Mountain Mesa, California) – See all my reviews



Deceitfully advertised as a sequel to the 1989 KILLER featuring the two leads of that film, Chow Yun-Fat and Danny Lee, this work was actually produced eight years earlier, with no relation to the John Woo directed piece, the deception not ending there as stills reproduced front and rear upon the video box are from other movies starring the two actors. The setting is British governed Hong Kong with the customary conflict in place between the forces of good (police) and evil (organized crime),occurring with much celerity and scant effort to show character development, marked by editing that propels the action at the expense of continuity. Such emphasis upon quick pacing might hide some flaws if they were few, but such is not the case here, and the English subtitles provide little assistance, being generally white on white while appearing fleetingly at that, at the same time grotesquely inaccurate; as example: several instances when police personnel are chasing suspects, calling for them to stop, the titles spell out a plaintive "Don't go, don't go". Unsubtle acting, preposterous dialogue, and embarrassingly inferior production values are present throughout although a decent performance is turned in by always dependable Kwan Hui-San as a police superintendent who wishes to continue an illicit relationship with a Triad while yet performing effective detective work, but scarce else is here to remember, even for fans of the popular Chow Yun-Fat.
