Colorful Action!
14 September 1998 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

Some main features are adapted by other western movies. Horse-riding shooters are found in Walter Hill's Long Riders and the main plot seems to be originated from Brian De Palma's Untouchables. However, some original technologies such as sounds and camera works are recognizable, which deny other deficiencies such as unreal setting of modern China.
