Due to the intensity and complexity of the sequence, both Donnie Yen and Collin Chou agreed that their fight sequence at the end of the film was the hardest shoot they had ever done in their respective careers See more »
Even though the movie takes place around 1997 there is a BMW X3 a visible and the X3 wasn't available before around 2004. See more »
to keep it short, i was highly surprised from it's great entertainment value.
the plot is hollow (good cops vs bad guys) but the good cast, camera work and fight scenes are over the top. speaking of the fight scenes, very impressive style from Donnie Yen (with age 44) and also the bad guys hand out some damage before they go down.
the first movie half is slow, but the ending will round it up. this action flick was nice done by the film crew, they put some work & love in it, something you miss in many HK movies nowadays.
(don't miss the end credits :)
