I found the DVD for sale, and the selling point for me was the casting of Eric Tsang as a triad gangster boss. Tsang was brilliant in 1998's 'Hitman,' alongside Jet Li, in my personal favorite of Li's films.
Daniel Wu plays an undercover Hong Kong cop infiltrating the triads to build a case against Tsang's character. However, he soon finds the trappings of the gangster life impossible to resist. He will do anything to protect his identity and the lifestyle he enjoys as a high-ranking mob enforcer, which makes him equally dangerous to both sides of the law.
Although you might find this movie in the Martial Arts section of your local video store, it really is not that sort of movie. Don't get me wrong, there is a fair amount of violence. But the gunplay doesn't resemble a ballet, and someone on the receiving end of a kick to the head is likely to be tied to a chair and helpless.
