Silly gun fight in the end
13 July 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The movie was building up to be really good until this really stupid bit in the movie involving the main character and Simon Yan where he is holding the girl captive. After being shot like a gazillion times, in fact he cops more bullets than 50 Cent and yet he is still alive.

The Storyline is something like this guy goes to jail and when he gets out and wants to start a normal life again then of course his past gets to him. He goes back to his job eventually and you know whatever... I'm not gonna say anymore. Don't worry you'll get what I mean when you watch the film. A good and tragic story but just that 1 bit in the movie that really made it silly
