Better than expected
1 August 2012 | by (Land of the dead) – See all my reviews

When it comes to deliver action, Hong Kong rarely disappoints and this film is no exception, every action scene is well made, from the first action scene to the last one, the action is mostly "John Woo'ish", but there are also a few brawls.

Jacky Cheung's character provides the humorous moments of the film, it wasn't annoying as expected, the comedic moments were good enough to give a few chuckles, Lo Lieh takes part of the movie, but don't expect him to kick a lot of ass, since he was pretty old when he made this film.

The violence is also brutal and bloody (slightly bloodier than John Woo's most famous films) and in a few moments it doesn't fear to break some taboo's, one of the violent scenes seems to pay homage to Scarface (the Al Pacino version).
