Very Good Gangster flick Hong Kong Style
25 August 2001 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

This fairly big budget flick with Andy Lau is a complex gangster story with several sub-plots. Set in the 30s the movie is stylish, violent, and very entertaining. A great "first film" for those new to Hong Kong cinema. Almen Wong shines as the nameless brutally insane assassin, the worlds prettiest hired thug!
