One of Ekin Chen's best
7 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The copy I got says Young and Dangerous 8, but I think this is misleading because there's no connection to the story, although cast includes Karen Mok thats reminiscent of Young and Dangerous series.

This movie actually is better than any of the Young and Dangerous series movie. The story, the characters, are better fleshed out, and don't rely on dumb antics from any of the casts.

This movie also has the best performance by Ekin Chen that I've ever seen. I like the story, the presentation, and the acting. Casting I think was also well selected in this movie.

More intelligently made, and story driven than any of the Young and Dangerous series movies, although the overall shell of the situation resembles that series closely.

A great movie that's worth seeing.

7.5/10
