Gun and Rose (1992) is about a triad family who's leader (Alan Tang) is implicated in some serious crimes (such as murder for one). He has to leave the family and go into hiding. The family "business" is in the hands of his two brother one is crazy (Simon Yam) the other is spineless (Bowie Lam). While Simon Yam plots to whack his older brother, Alan Tang is hiding out in a fishing village an befriends a likable rogue (Andy Lau) and her annoying sister (Carrie Ng). Simon learns about his brother's where abouts and decides to make his life very uncomfortable. Will Alan get back into action and take out Simon or will he become another victim of his madness?
A surprise to me how enjoyable this movie was. There's plenty of action and a lot of out of place comedy (courtesy of Andy Lau). One scene has Andy Lau dancing away to music from a juke box. Simon Yam is his wing nut self whilst Bowie Lam plays the role of a weak willed push over. Alan Tang also gets to prove that he still has it.
