A Gangster's Fairy-Tale
12 October 1999 | by See all my reviews

'Tongs' is essentially 'Scarface' in Chinatown. As such it is an intense story, filled with the violence and melodrama that make the gangster genre so compelling. Simon Yam is great as a migrant who comes to America and blasts his way to the higher rungs of the underworld ladder.

A diamond in the rough for gangster fans. As good or better than many of the similar Hong Kong crime tales, not counting John Woo or Tsui Hark's work.
