A miss for Chan
27 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Starting off as promising as any other Gordon Chan film, this tale about Hong Kong special forces, the supernatural, Heaven & Hell, soon buckles underneath it's own weight & moves from interesting and promising to just plain silly and tedious, before sputtering to a lifeless and unfulfilled conclusion. Both Andy Lau and Anthony Wong are as good as always, but they really deserve a much better movie for both their considerable talents. This is not one of my favorite Chan films by a long shot to say the least. That's sad as he's usually a solidly good director.

My Grade: D+

DVD Extras: Commentary by Gordon Chan; A 22 minute Making of; Both Hong Kong & US Trailers, & Trailers for "King of Beggars", "Beast Cops", "Option Zero", "First Option", "2000 A.D.", "Running out of Time", "Body Weapon", "Dragon Inn", "Fist Power", & "the Duel"
