Goofs

Johnny Kung is talking to his father on the phone, and Kung Wei tells him to call him on his pager if he needs anything. As Kung Wei reads his pager number on the phone, and the subtitles show the numbers - 1177131910, Johnny writes them on the brick wall. But he misses the last "1" between the 9 and 0. He memorizes the number and then wipes it off the wall - but he would have the wrong number memorized. See more »

More of a drama than a martial arts film... but still terrific
30 October 1998 | by (Berkeley, CA) – See all my reviews

The general plot is quite standard: An undercover cop takes on one last dangerous assignment, relations involved, etc. There have been many, many films with the same type of plot.

However, this film manages to stand out on its own. The father-son combo of Jet Li and Tsu Miu works remarkably well (the 2nd time these two have been paired up). Anita Mui stars as a HK cop trying to figure out what the heck is going on. Throw in an over-acting (but still funny) villain (who incidentally played Iron Monkey), and we have an action-packed thriller to the end.

The emotional parts of the film may drag a bit, but it's not too excessive. Jet Li especially succeeds in this role... we can see the internal conflict and pains of emotion within. The scene where the villain tries to get his son to ID his undercover dad is very notable.

There may not be as much kung fu as most fans would like, but we do get to see Li wield a new type of weapon. Generally the kung fu serves to move the plot along, not to be specifically highlighted as the main attraction. That's okay, considering the movie is so well done....
