Oshima's great, but the story? Not so much.
23 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Director Frankie Chan knows how to shoot and conduct action, however in a leading role unfortunately he's mediocre. His character sticks out among the other highly charismatic protagonists, and the partnership between him and Mok feels artificial. The plot stalls out a few times with hokey sub-plots like Chan's sister and Mok's girlfriend, but besides a few moments of lame comedy the movie keeps on pace fairly well. Chan and Mok steal Porsches for a living, although a rival auto theft-ring forces them to work on their side. Chan and Mok hatch a scheme that involves a police detective (Oshima) in which would bust their rival ring. Oshima isn't enthused, and decides to do some rogue police work to corner all criminal parties involved. The rest of the movie is a chess game between our duo, Oshima, and the rival crime organization. The final confrontation is excellent and original, although once again the movie drags a bit getting to the finish. The film doesn't age as gracefully compared to other similar works at the time, for example by Jackie Chan or John Woo, but honestly it's a fun time regardless. If your familiar with Hong Kong action cinema then I'd recommend it. The movie has a great car chase in it as well, which is a rarity with HK pictures from this era. -6/10
