Shu Qi - the face of a goddess, with the body to match! She arguably steals the show even from the cute and feisty as usual Chingmy Yau, and that is no small accomplishment.
The first hour of this movie deals mostly with the rivalry between two night clubs operating in the same Hong Kong area - not exactly the stuff that compelling drama is made of. Then Simon Yam re-appears (he had left the picture after the first 5 minutes), and his forceful performance makes the film more involving - he plays a scumbag that you really want to see knocked down.
Fans of either of the three stars won't be disappointed, and fans of "Category III" Hong Kong sleaze may "enjoy" (if that's the word) the final half-hour, but pure action fans need not bother with this film. It's basically a drama, sprinkled with broad, raunchy comedy and nasty, unpleasant violence. (**)
