Ngai Choi Lam first massive hit
18 July 2017 | by phanthingaSee all my reviews

If you familiar with the director filmography you will know Ngai Choi Lam is the one responsible for the most goriest kung fu movie ever made Story of Ricky (1991) that also my very first movie from him so see this movie Men from the gutter a very early and good heroic bloodshed movie from him is pretty surprising.I enjoy this movie from start to finish.There two storyline in this movie one is about a group of ex con try to pull out one last big hit and one about a revenge path of a man.Each story is very thrilling and fill with good performance.The action scene is bloody and hard hitting with a very awesome shoot out near the end.Fan of Ngai Choi Lam movie and heroic bloodshed genre definitely need to check out this one
