Great Action
6 April 2000 | by (Stockton, CA) – See all my reviews

The is a great action movie. Ching Siu Tung furnishes some his best choreography and Zhao Wen Zhou gets to use a lot of good wushu. Full of gunplay, explosions, and kung fu. Don't miss the end sequence, it's a classic. My main problem is the excessive blood and brutality. I thought it undermines a lot of the action. Setting that aside, a good film for people who like HK action.
