early hong kong take on crying freeman
30 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

The first time I saw this movie,i didn't even know that this had something to do with crying freeman! Of course they changed the story quite a bit! But in this case that doesn't matter! The focus of the story here is on the loyalty between the adopted son and the family (father)! It is about betrayal and revenge! Also there is some love! For the most part this is a crime/gangster drama with great action! The action consists of gun play and sword fights. These fights are more then excellent! It is a mystery to me why this movie doesn't get the attention it deserves! It is much better than most HK movies they bring out on DVD's! But that is a general complaint I have! There are a lot of Hong Kong titles out there that would blow your mind,but somehow never got made on DVD. Or at least not made available internationally! Which is strange,because they did import these titles on video! Anyway, this movie is a classic! Simon Yam in a early good role. Brilliant!
