Storyline

In Hong Kong, Ho Chen-tung is the aging Mob boss, living by a code of honor, keeping peace among rival factions. For years, he has been estranged from his son, Hui, who lives in Australia. Tung has become a sort of father to Han, a Vietnamese refugee who also lives by an ethical code. At the same time that Hui reaches out to his father, the Hong Kong CID conclude their years'-long effort to get the goods on Tung and his associates. Tung expects the younger gangsters to live by the code he loves, but at his trial, he has a surprise coming to him. It may be up to Han to restore the balance. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

The film was made while actor, Chow Yun Fat, was still recognized as a Hong Kong television star, therefore he only appeared in a supporting role. However, on the Tai Seng DVD re-release, he can be seen on the cover with star billing, based on his commercial success since the film's original release date. See more »

Nothing worth seeing
22 August 2000 | by (Froland, Norway) – See all my reviews

During my recent holiday in Denmark, I picked up "Code Of Honour", because it looked cool and Chow Yun-Fat was at the cover. I believed, and any movie-fan would believe by looking at the cover, that Chow Yun-Fat was the star in this film. The film is about 90 minutes long, and Chow Yun-Fat was present for about 3 minutes. So, Chow Yun-Fat only had a small supporting-role. Other than that disappointment, this move hadn`t got a lot going for it. A few scenes were good, but there was almost no action and the characters weren`t as good as I`ve come to expect from my exotic actionflicks from the East. As in all Hongkong-films, honour and betrayal stand as the main themes in the films. 4/10
