An excellent film following the life of an unemployed marine leading up to the change over of Hong Kong
7 October 1999 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The film is centred around the transition of Hong Kong from a British possession back to China. It follows the life of an ex-marine whose unit is disbanded three months before the change over. Unable to find a job, he joins his brother working for a crime boss as a driver. Unsatisfied with their lot in life, the brothers and some ex-marine friends plot to rob a bank where one of the ex-marines is working as a guard. The robbery goes tragically wrong when they come across another group of (somewhat more violent) robbers. The rest of the film, which includes the change over, follows the events that unfold after the robbery. Although the film has a very dark and sad edge to it, there are sporadic and on-going light moments provided by various tertiary characters. All up, an excellent film well worth hunting down.
