The Cinema of Ringo Lam.
20 February 2005 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

The Adventurers (1995) was a big budgeted film (for Ringo Lam) that spans across three countries. The film begins in Thailand and goes to the United States and Hong Kong. It's also a tale of revenge, a deep rooted one that lasts well over two decades. A young child is the only survivor of a family massacre. His uncle (David Chiang) raises the boy until adulthood (Andy Lau). For many years he has been waiting for the right moment to avenge his family's honor. The kid flies to the United States where he finds his foe. He's strangely attracted to his wife (Rosamund Kwan) and uses her to get back at her sleazy husband. But fate plays a cruel trick upon him because he's also attracted to her daughter. Will she get into his way on his path of vengeance?

A nice high gloss action vehicle for Hong Kong pop star Andy Lau, he commanded a high price for his role (one and a half million U.S.D.). It's a hefty sum but it's worth it because he actually acts pretty well in this picture. Ringo Lam has worked miracles with a lot of difficult actors (Jean Claude Van Damme). Instead of mugging and goofing off in front of the camera, Andy shows emotions and depth into his role. The action is well choreographed and the cinematography is top notched.

Highly recommended.
