It's all because of you..
31 December 2005 | by (NY) – See all my reviews

Great film, no wonder Mister To won a few festivals with this film.

His work has a director is brilliant in this movie ! Specially the Sukiyaki scene ! Where he proves in an eight-minute scene, that you don't need words to describe a relationship between characters ! Just good shoots, an excellent montage and great actors ! That scene should be a cult scene ! As for the story, it's the story of two men, working for an opposite gang, but still men of pride and honor, this is a story about love, friendship, betrayal, vengeance and hope.

Something I really noticed in this movie, is the great soundtrack ! You might feel that To is trying to use it to easily, but it just works out fine in every scene !

So in a few words : A great film, a must-see ! And should definitely be seen by everybody !
