Forgettable action film
13 December 2012 | by (Land of the dead) – See all my reviews

I only came across 3 reviews/comments on this movie and none of them praised the film, i'm not surprised at all. I didn't expected the film to be so boring and forgettable, it's a shame, because the movie had potential, also because the underrated Chin Siu-Ho and Collin Chou are the main leads of this movie.

The plot promised lots of action and decent ass kicking: After witnessing the killing of some police officers and a key-witness of some big crime case, Chou (an upper class student, played by Collin Chou) and Spitfire (a street rascal, played by Chin Siu-ho) are mistaken by the police as the real murderers, their only choice is to run away from the law and the corrupt police officer (played by Teddy Yip) that planned the assassination.

There are only a few good action scenes (the others are uninspired or not engaging), and they are too short (and that's a pity, because the Sammo Hung Stunt-team choreographed the fights). Too much time is spent on boring ass drama and the ending is a freaking joke (we can see that the movie was rushed and the filmmakers had no intention to make something decent).

My vote is 2, only because of a few fights scenes and a few scores on the soundtrack, the rest is garbage.
