Underrated
12 October 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

An underrated film hardly ever mentioned that with higher production values (ie. a bigger budget and more time to make it) could have been really good. Instead it is only average but the fights, especially the end fight, are good and a few highlights are:

1) Gordon Liu with hair! and at one point wearing a suit and tie 2) the short but clever fight between Gordon Liu and his 'brother' who directed the film

The plot is above average but is never developed properly and as is his way Lau Kar Leung grounds the fights in reality with no obvious use of wires or tricks. Li Ying is a believable heroine. Several well known actors such as Wilson Tong, Mars and Karl Maka make appearances and it is worth renting, if possibly not actually owning.
