A Great Shot...NOT a misfire.
22 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

This movie is fantastic. The cast is great. Ti Lung proves once again that he is a fantastic actor. Since the early days of the Shaw Brothers Studios to the John Woo classic "A Better Tomorrow". Also, we have Simon Yam (most recently seen in Lara Croft Tomb Raider II) and John Woo's classic "A Bullet In The Head". And we have "bad guy"regular Waise Lee as "Faucet". If anyone can pull of the bad guy role it is Waise Lee. He does such a great job at these roles it makes you wonder if he is a nice guy off camera.

And how could I ever forget the beauty of Maggie Cheung. Any film with her in it is worth seeing just to be able to see hear beauty fill the screen.

There are quite a few comparisons with this film and Brian De'Palma's 1987 film "Untouchables". Similar? Yes. They are both great in their different ways. If you are looking for a place to start in the "heroic bloodshed" chapter of Hong Kong Cinema. Then I suggest you run to the nearest diversified video store and seek this gem out. Also, check out John Woo's "A Better Tomorrow" and see just how cool Ti Lung is in these films.
