i rented it from blockbuster recently and i was very impressed with what juwan did with this movie. i was expecting below average cinematography and a movie id turn off after halfway through - as i did with even Hollywood movies such as hit-man, shoot em up, hellboy 2 - but it was good enough to keep me watching. i liked the style and brashness of it and the story. i did have some complaints though how the story was a bit too chaotic to follow sometimes, the sound wasn't as clean in some scenes, the lead girl wasn't pretty. but that didn't ruin it. i really liked the acting by the benny and baby characters and the dad as well. the movie reminded me of a good old hong kong triad flick and it even had a classic song by alan tam in it that i loved as a kid. really cool. so i recommend this flick. support indie-Asian-good cinema!
