8 With Rosamund Kwan 10 without her
9 May 2007 | by (North Cyprus) – See all my reviews

Oh man this is definitely in my top ten Asian films along with Hard Boiled ,The Killer ,Fist of Legend etc.

The fights are awesome even better than the ones in In The Line of Duty IV. Especially Donnie Yen vs Michael Woods is an absolute screen fighting legend.

How I wished that Carol 'Do Do' Cheng would play the lead girl instead of Rosamund "I'm the most annoying female lead ever" Kwan. I hated every scene including her. Even her character being clumsy didn't make me smile, made me hate her more.

How I wish I could make this movie without her. It would have been 10/10 for sure. I wonder why they cannot make movies like this anymore.

An action classic...Unmissable for any HK action fan
