Trivia

Wu Bai was requested by the director to compose a Happy Birthday song that nobody has ever heard of just half an hour before filming. Then he was given half an hour again to come up with alternate lyrics for the song, used for a later scene of them singing in the car. See more »

Quotes

Tyler: [First Lines] It is said in the beginning there was nothing. Everything was pitch black. The one in charge said that wouldn't do. Then there was light. Light is good. It lets you see the world around you. The next day, sky appeared. That same sky has rainbows. And lightning, too. Very interesting. On the third day, there was water.

One incredibly crafted Hong Kong action movie.
28 November 2001 | by (Snellville, Georgia) – See all my reviews

This movie is amazing, plain and simple. The most amazing action film I've ever seen, forget The Matrix, Time and Tide is absolutely stunning! Nicholas Tse is definitely some one to keep your eye on, you'll be seeing him again. If you haven't seen this movie, I strongly suggest you do. And, the tagline says it all, this isn't a Kung Fu movie, this is a 100% Pure action film. The story is great, and the action scenes will keep you pressed against the back of your chair. Amazing.
