Great Movie!
2 May 1999 | by See all my reviews

Its been a long time since I've watched some dark gritty film. The story was great. As mentioned it was very realistic. When watched, please don't expect it is the best drama nor the best comedy. It is a little of both, that's what makes it so good. This movie sure beats the hell out of the whole Young and Dangerous movies.

Oh yeah, don't expect any Hong Kong stars to show up because this was a low-budget film(not that THAT was a bad thing).
