Has that classic Shaw brothers feel, except doesn't fit well in the story's modern age of guns and grit.
An emotionally charged gangster flick surrounding a traitor within one Triad mob and a couple of overzealous members who seek revenge for the betrayal. The story is simple and doesn't offer much intrigue, and the performances by the righteous Triad members (Ka-Yan Leung & Norman Chu) are mediocre as well. The one redeemable aspect of this fast-food revenge flick is the insane machete fights that get progressively more intense. The problem with the mass machete riots is that the movie makes clear guns are available to mob members however nobody ever uses a gun. Usually scenarios are set up in martial arts films where the use of guns during fight sequences are unattainable, prohibited, dishonorable, etc. In Hong Kong Godfather no attempt is made to reason why none of the mobsters on-screen don't just use a handgun to get what they want. An irritating flaw, especially in this era of widespread gun use with Triad films, but regardless the machete fights are very enjoyable and have their impressive moments. Despite the bloody fights I'd still give it a pass, as the ending's not as satisfying as most other fun Shaw Brothers ventures. -5/10
