Finally a real HK film again that is meant to appeal to a local and young audience.
A former Triad hit-man is trying to go clean but of course it doesn't work. The story builds up nicely to the finale with a very righteous revenge trip by the excellent Jordan Chan. A sea of CGI blood and cartoon intercuts make this a surprisingly stylish affair with the traditional colored lighting only adding value to the premise. Wong Tin Lam is in great shape and we get to see another gangster election headed by the producer's father, too.
As far as Wong Jing films go, this one is certainly one his better projects and shows that HK cinema isn't dead quite yet.
