This movie is a mix of a war movie and The Godfather as directed by Quentin Tarantino. Little slow but good. I say B-
16 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Even if your battalion can take Shanghai in one day, they will never ever find you again." In the 1930's Shanghai was full of ruthless gangsters. Working his way to the top of the criminal underworld Cheng(Yon-Fat) he thinks he is untouchable. When he finds himself stuck in the middle of the invading Japanese army and the secret service he realizes he has more enemies then he thought and is left on his own. I was looking forward to this movie quite a bit. While I am not a huge foreign movie fan I am a big fan of the gangster genre. This movie was a little slow moving but still worth seeing. Being a foreign movie 80% of people will not watch so this won't be a long one but the best way to convince people to see it is to go generic. This movie is a mix of a war movie and The Godfather as directed by Quentin Tarantino. If that won't help you then I don't know what else to say. Overall, little slow but worth watching. I did like it. I say B-.
