A crime lord's bodyguard tries to leave his past life behind.
8 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of Chan Wai Man's roles where he's a good guy. Once you sort out the badly given clues, the basic plot is that he was once the bodyguard of a crime lord. The best of the best. He was enticed into the fold by the crime lord's "moll", then discovers that she's just one of the many women the guy has frolicking around. He meets a "good girl," vows to go straight and makes good on his word. Evidently he disappears to live a different life with her. Years later, his whereabouts are discovered by two of the boss's thugs. The boss has always resented his leaving and sets up a murder to frame Chan. With the help of an old friend, and a jealous woman, Chan manages to clear his name and save his wife & child who had been kidnapped to coerce him into helping with a bank job. I have the dubbed version, which as usual is badly done. It's an interesting story idea; if you can put up with the flashbacks done with no warning (so you're going, "huh?"), it's not that bad. I would give this a 5, but since it was nice to see Chan in a good guy role, I'll up it to a 6.
