Though the storyline is virtually non-existent, this is a beautifully shot (by Raymond Lam) Hong Kong film directed by Ma Wu, who directed (with John Woo) "Just Heroes". Waise Lee and Jacky Cheung, who would later star in Woo's "Bullet in the Head", are part of a trio of old friends whose loyalties are tested by a scam to make money. The film explores many of the issues "Bullet" explored such as mateship, loyalty and honor. The film is slow and uneventful at times, but the climax is reasonably bloody and gorgeous to look at, and the film's Kennedy Town setting is novel. Great trailer, too. Not surprisingly, the film, which falls into a category between action and drama, did not perform well at the Hong Kong box office.
