Brilliant
9 April 2006 | by (China) – See all my reviews

Why there wasn't a second series I don't know. This was brilliant. It was risky, dangerous, crazy, and had all the hall marks of Hong Kong's movie industry bar the sub-titles. Highly underrated in its day but it now looks ahead of its time.

Shot like a movie. It would probably be in High Def. nowadays but in those days it was an innovation to go very art house in what was essentially just a cop show. But the plot lines were surreal and exotic. The lighting was dark and highly influenced by the neon signs that abound in Hong Kong.

Broody and strangely witty. Beneath all the hairy chested machismo was an art house sensibility and of course that Kung Fu influence long before Tarrantino got the message.

Lawrence Gray, one of the writers by the way ended up writing Chinese and Indian movies and has become something of a literary figure in Asia. He's currently producing movies.
