Fun movie with twists you don't expect in the genre
I sat down to this movie with friends as I ritualistically do with Hong Kong action films, expecting not much originality, plenty of shooting, and little character development. I was totally wrong.
This movie is full of action, and yet has interesting and humorous characters along the way. I forgot that it was an action movie entirely while watching some parts, as I was amused and intrigued by the way the characters were dealing with each other.
Aaron Kwok, Eason Chan and Yumiko Cheng give good performances in this film. Perhaps best is the relationship between Kwok and Chan, and the original changes that occur throughout the film. From an office paintball match to a plunge off a three story roof, the two endure many hardships while engaging each other in even more.
Overall, a movie I would recommend to anyone seeking action or comedy.
