I bought the HKL dvd of this movie without really knowing much about it, being a big fan of Jackies action movies , I have to say that on the first viewing I was dissappointed!. However I have rewatched it and listened to the great commentary from Bey Logan and now I realise exactly what Jackie was trying to do with this one. It really is aimed directly at the Japanese market..apparently Jackie took a pole of his Japanese Fans and they voted for Ryu Saeba as the character that they most wanted to see Jackie Play!. That said the actual film is not great, yes the fight scenes and stunts as always are breathtaking but the actual film is more for the kids.
The use of a limited primary colour pallet is very 'art house' with all the characters in vivid red, black, white (thats Jackie of coarse!) and blue, adding to the comic book feel of the story. If you are going to get this movie I suggest you look out for the Hong Kong Legends DVD version as it has all the extras and explains so much...frankly Im not supprised that Jackie decided against making a City Hunter 2... 4/10
