Cliché 80s mediocrity
25 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Drama unfolds between a group of characters involved in a bad night in Taiwan.

This movie is very much advertised as an action movie through it's posters and boasts stars that have appeared in action movies, Waise Lee and Michael Wong.

As the film plays, the plot becomes reminiscent of John Woo's A Better Tomorrow. It is likely because it is a cash in on the popularity of it. This film is nowhere near Woo's epic, despite featuring Waise Lee who appeared the film.

The characters are weak. The plot is filled with lots of clichés of 80s cinema. In general it is very dated. Nothing special.

A superior film of the same year that also stars Waise Lee is The Big Heat.
