ignore the story,superb action
26 February 2006 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Return Engagement (RA) is one of those bloodshed titles where the action is more important than the the story and drama. The action,especially the ending is one to watch over and over again. Being a fan of heroic bloodshed with gun play (in slow motion),I can't get enough of these titles. Compared to action movies made in US, this one is a gem. If they made more titles like this one than I would be in heaven. Alan Tang really does a good job as the father who tries to make a mends with his daughter. Simon Yam is the typical bad guy in these kind of movies,but still he delivers style to his acting. Andy Lau plays Alan's sidekick with flair. RA made in the eighties certainly is still enjoyable now in 2012. Watch it!
