Disappointing Shaw Brothers melodrama
28 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Director Nam Nai Choi is best known for the outlandish - and ultra-violent - fantasies 'The Seventh Curse' and 'The Story of Ricky'. This earlier effort for Shaw Brothers gets off to a promising start, showing two young brothers growing up in the crime-ridden slum that was Kowloon's Walled City in Hong Kong. Once these characters become adults, the film is far less interesting, forsaking any dramatic force for clichéd soap opera. The plot contrivances come thick and fast and it's hard to care about any of the characters. Even the grand finale - which promises to be explosive - is a damp squib. The juvenile lead is Chin Siu Ho, best known for 'Mr Vampire'. He never quite made it as a star and it's easy to see why in this film. Chin lacks the presence and charisma to carry an admittedly weak vehicle. Nam Nai Choi would reunite with Chin for the vastly superior 'The Seventh Curse', a genuinely jaw-dropping experience.
