Film that inspired Reservoir Dogs
12 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the greatest films Hong Kong has ever made. A crime drama that takes a serious of twists and turns as you follow an undercover Hong Kong detective. Its beautiful, and very unique cinematography and camera angles are some of the best you will ever see; and are what inspired Quentin Tarantino to make Reservoir Dog's. A must watch for any one with a love for good film, a well written/executed story, and a lover of Reservoir Dog's.

The director uses the play of light and shadow do show the emotion of a situation or character in a tasteful way. The camera angles are something I still marvel at after all the films I've seen and the acting breaks through the language barrier better then most any foreign film.
