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.

Version: Cantonese, with English subtitles (by SBS).
'Time and Tide' is easily one of the best action movies I've ever seen. Nic Tse plays a regular guy trying to make money for his child, and is way out of his element as a bartender when he joins a protection service. Tse is the hero of the story, but it is Wu Bai who rules most of the action.
Despite other comments about the movie's plot, I thought it was pretty good. Simply put, we have an everyday guy just trying to help someone out, and befriends a bad guy, the action hero, who is working for similar reasons.
However, the action is where its at, and 'Time and Tide' delivers. There are some great, kinetic action scenes, including one inside/on a building, which I think is one of the best action scenes ever made.
9/10 - Great action movie, but may not appeal to fans of the genre. The awesome genre.
