John Woo's first effort as a director and boy does he pull of a good job. Starring James Tien and Carter Wong the two begin as friends yet are torn apart by the enemy and the heart of a girl. The two manage to set aside their differences to overcome the enemy in a dramatic finale where the two defeat a whole entourage of enemy's. The movie follows a brilliant storyline and the acting in it is superb successfully conveying emotions and building the characters up well. Their is a number of fights and the finale is probably some of the greatest kung-fu i've ever seen. The stars Carter Wong and especially James Tien are on their top form and this is defiantly a recommended film if you can get your hands on it.
