Intense crime drama. Brilliant action.
19 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one serious crime drama with plenty of action and an interesting angle of Chinese and Philippine law enforcement working together, albeit reluctantly at first, to catch their man. Framed murder suspect Lin Yue Feng (Yuen Biao) keeps getting into deeper and deeper hot water. While trying to clear his name and get to the bottom of who the real killer is, he manages a few narrow escapes from the police with his superior fighting and leaping skills. But he can't keep it up forever. And the police aren't the only ones after him.

Yuen Biao is really extraordinary when he's doing heavy drama like this. It's hard to believe this is the same happy-go-lucky guy you'll find in many of his other movies. Between his acting range and physical skills, there's really nothing he doesn't do exceptionally well. If only he spoke English, he'd be as huge in the US as he is overseas.

My only complaint about this movie, and not enough to knock any points off, is the use of slow- motion in some of the action sequences. Slow-motion for a cut or two during a fight is one thing - it can add intensity. But slow-motion for an entire fight? Very bad. It's hard to see the action for the one thing and you don't feel it as much as you do at regular speed. A frustrating distraction. But fortunately, there are plenty of action sequences where they kept it at a proper, normal speed.

Otherwise, damn, this is one heck of a movie. Many times I found my hands clenched or I was biting a finger or something, caught up in the tension. Great stuff.
