Some reviewers compare this movie to John Woo's a Better Tomorrow! I think that is very misleading! Because the action is nothing like the great shootouts in Better Tomorrow ! Only the ending came close to a shootout we are used to seeing in heroic bloodshed titles! I think this a more a drama about these hit men who have a special kind of relationship! They are rivals who respect each other nothing more nothing less! The girlfriends add some good emotional context to their personalities! If you hear about a title like Hero never dies you expect some mayhem,or at least a lot of bloodshed,but it simply isn't there,except for the ending (which was a bit short)! After seeing some of these so called heroic bloodshed titles and like "Hero never dies" i realize that John Woo really is "God of Heroic Bloodshed", because there are no other directors who come even close making movies like he did (Better Tomorrow, The Killer, Hard Boiled). Johnny To has another vision! I don't know what he tries to tell us or show us in this movie! But this movie did not involve me much story wise and the action was average! And for a movie like this it at least had to contain an interesting story to move you, or more depth to the characters ! But it didn't,so this movie in my opinion falls short!
