Detectives Dick Lee (Chow Yun Fat) and Ken Chow (Ti Lung) have different ethics and ways of working but after a tense confrontation with a major Triad boss, they must put aside their differences and hunt him down before they are both killed. Written by
Ti Lung as Ken and Chow Yun-Fat as Dick are back as policeman only this time, Dick is the calm negotiator and Ken the hot head, flying off the handle. These guys are such good actors that they make their characters believable. City War has the usual very bad guys and lots of guns and bloody battles. But it also has some music and domestic scenes with Ken's family - and Ken's wife fixing Dick up with a woman and the funny scene with the two of them getting acquainted.
The scene of Chow dancing with the villains girlfriend Penny (before he knows who she is), is one of the most erotic ever in one of his films. This guy can do anything - he is just amazing and each film shows another of his great portrayals.
This is not a must have but for true CYF fans, or Ti Lung, it is one to see at least once.
