Quintessential Hong Kong film
18 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Check this out if you love HK gangster flicks. This one has it all: evil Japanese, swordfighting, acrobatic gunplay, love, honor, betrayal, kneecap shooting, and ancestor disrespecting, all topped off with a bittersweet finale! Basically plays like a low-rent version of "The Killer". The action is slow to build, coming mainly in the film's second half, but once it starts, it doesn't let up. Somewhat imitative of John Woo's stylings during the gunfights, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Certainly not in the same class as Woo, Lam, or Hark's best work, but a lot more satisfying and exciting than "The Replacement Killers". The DVD from Tai Seng is cheap, but it's also dubbed, fullscreen, and a poor transfer to boot. Still, I consider it 6 bucks well spent on a film I'll definitely watch again.
