The Adventurers is a fairly average actioner from the once prolific Ringo Lam, more remembered for Andy Lau's then-record-breaking salary for a Hong Kong film (US$1.5m) than its qualities as a film. It has a couple of good moments, but its burdened by a plot that's ridiculous even by HK standards after botching an assassination attempt on the uncle who killed his parents for the Khmer Rouge, fighter pilot Lau goes to America, joins the CIA, where they make him the head of the biggest triad in San Francisco so he can kidnap and marry said uncle's daughter to find out about arms shipments to Cambodia as you do. It's not uncommon for HK films to make the plot up as they go along, but this one plays like they had a different writer for each reel, none of whom were told what the others were doing. An okay time-filler, but no more.
