Sworn Brothers stands out from the crowd of Hong Kong films with the same themes because it's just a bit more brutal, and just a bit more entertaining. The name says it all, "sworn brothers" one is a cop the other a crook, bla, bla, bla, uncle gets hurt, brothers go to war.

(OK it's no John Woo flick or anything, it's just fun.)
