Since I hadn't seen the previous Y&D flicks I didn't really know what to expect but being a fan of other Hong Kong action flicks such as The Killer, Bullet in the Head, A Better tommorrow etc. I decided to give it a go. Now the action scenes ain't that good, and the acting is pretty over the top, and the lines are really strange at times but it is the story that really has something going for it. Although fast paced young and dangerous 3 certainly has a very complex and exciting storyline which is filled with many colorful and interesting characters. The ending was a bit disapointing as I waited the whole movie for a really spectacular finale but the fighting was too messy and disorintating as it took place during a full scale riot. But the story still kept me hooked from start to finish and there is a really surprising and almost shocking twist just before the finish that will probably shock the fans of the series and people that are familiar with all of the characters from previous films. All in all a pretty standard Hong Kong action flick that stands just a par above the rest for it's complex and engaging storyline.
