Storyline

Two petty adolescent street urchins Lo and Lung become inseparable sworn brothers who survive the cruelty of the streets. They are separated after Lo gets caught by the law trying to steal food. Years later, Lung grows up to be an enforcer for a gambling syndicate not knowing that it also fronts as a narcotics ring. To contrast Lo is raised in a law enforcement household and is sent out to investigate drug activity in the region. They reunite under a fragile alliance on the opposite sides of the law as their interests spiral into collusion. Things turn deadly after drug boss Ma retaliates by having Lo's stepfather killed and framing Lung for the deed. Written by Kenny Woo

Problematic family reunion due to different sides of the law
5 August 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Another Ocean Shores VHS release that makes me wonder how I ever watched VHS on my old square television. I'm used to the fuzzy picture and at least this one had acceptable color but the voice actors could barely speak English. The story starts with two kids tattooing themselves to be blood brothers. They are separated and one grows up to be policeman and the other a gangster. This becomes a problem when they reunite plus a girl is thrown in for a love interest. The movie is surprisingly heavy on the drama for a Hong Kong movie, I initially thought is from Taiwan because of that. The fights are good from start to finish. A typical downside is that all the fights start to look alike after a while. Some effort was made to overcome that fault. There was also good focus and power throughout. I rate it slightly above average at 6.5 out of 10.
