Super brutal Shaw Brothers triad movie
7 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hong Kong Godfather is indeed a great movie . As far as quality , Shaw Bros. studios was one of the most consistent ones around . The SB logo was the deciding factor in purchasing this DVD. I am not disappointed . This gritty action drama is somewhat of a hybrid of a heroic bloodshed film crossed with the classic kung fu movie . What is interesting is this predates A Better Tomorrow by a year. Both films are similar , except in this there are knife and kung fu fighting instead of gun battles. Of which are extremely brutal and bloody. The melodrama and quality of acting keeps things moving and interesting in between the action scenes . This is much better than many of the A Better Tomorrow clones that came after this . If you are a fan of heroic bloodshed , or brutal martial arts films you should watch this . You will not be disappointed. Also similar is Code Of Honor which is very good( but less bloody )as well.
