Toughest action flick ever made?
3 August 1999 | by (Oslo, Norway) – See all my reviews

Shocking action for a mature audience! The first Hong Kong director to give John Woo competition! The movie is high explosive with Chow Yun Fat as the main man. Together with the excellent actors; Anthony Wong and Simon Yam, who manage to steal the show! Behind the scenes there were arguments and tension among the actors that the director on purpose used to improve the actors preformances. You can clearly see that Yam and Fat competes!

This movie is tougher than any american action, I`ve ever seen! Die hard is just a gasp compared to this flick! This thank`s to exceptional directing from Ringo Lam!

This movie is not to be missed by any fan of real action and Hong Kong movies!
