Classic tragic hero film
17 March 2003 | by (Denver, CO) – See all my reviews

This film is one of the best gangster flicks ever to come out of Hong Kong. Incredibly photographed, it is the classic tragic hero film. Unfortunately, the original print is forever destroyed, therefore, this movie will ONLY be available on VHS. The ending is one of the bloodiest, most brutal gunfights ever captured on film...easily puts John Woo choreography to shame. Parts of it don't hold up to todays standards but believe me when I tell you to seek out and watch this movie at all costs.
