Did You Know?

In the parking garage scene, it took Yu Xing 39 takes in order to complete the simple shot of him leaping over the gate when attacking the man in the car. Donnie Yen attributed Yu's difficulty to nerves, as this was his first movie with Yen and the scene was his first to be shot in the film. An outtake of Yu crashing through the gate and breaking it is included in the movie's final credits.See more »
Continuity: During the final fight between Ma Jun and Tony, where Ma Jun is delivering knee strikes to the head while in side-mount position, Ma Jun's black T-shirt under his leather jacket is untucked. As the fight progresses, his T-shirt is shown to be partially or fully tucked in.See more »

nice.., 20 August 2007
Author: hamiltonau from Australia, Sydney..Redfern

This was a real surprise as on a rainy day in the only Chinese cinema left in Sydney, to think i only went into Market city for some yum cha and got a whole lot more than i bargained for.

A fantastic roller-coaster ride of a film, OK so the long slow ride up to the top end of it can be daunting for those with ADD or a high blood sugar level but its sure worth it once you get there. Intense satisfying action shot from every possible angle yet still filled with a spontaneous verite energy unmatched by any Hollywood film i have seen..ever.

Its innovative style while a bit light on plot or dialogue (OK so i am stuck with subtitles which obviously lose something in the translation) overcomes any accusations of pretentiousness that could be leveled at a lot of similar films. The raw energy of the film leaks into every scene however still and explodes onto the screen when the action finally ramps up. Considering the violent nature of the film a lot of the actual killing is suggested rather than replayed in Technicolor from umpteen angles, but we still experience every kick and punch as if it were flying our way.

OK admittedly the story is about as engrossing as 300 or a lot of other HK cop films, IE runs at a primal level deeper than mere plot twists or any complicated subtext. No, its all about the man versus what he sees as injustice and occasionally about a friendship. Mostly though its about the battle for whats right even if thats not quite clear sometimes, by the end you know who the good guys are and as manipulated as you might feel you are rooting for them all the way.

OK I'm running out of superlatives and metaphors now..just go out and watch it if you like a good old school popcorn bash and can handle some underplayed buddy semantics.
