Gambling and a Kangaroo
12 January 2017 | by ThyDavidethSee all my reviews

I'm a big fan of Nam Nai Choi because of his movies The Story Of Ricky and The Seventh Curse so what the ****! Let's try Killer's Nocturne. Killer's Nocturne is a HK action/drama/gambling movie. It's about Chi Feng who witnesses his father get killed out of revenge over a gambling thing. He tries to seek revenge but gets his *** kicked so he gets out of town to only have his *** kicked further by sissies and even a kangaroo. Then he picks up a trade in gambling and then seeks revenge (again!!) against the man who killed his father.

I enjoyed this one mainly because of the violence which is bloody and even a tad bit gory. It even has a few left-field moments but most notably the scene when this dude fought a kangaroo which was completely bizarre. The action is mostly brawling and even some kung fu with some gun fights. The story was good and coherent but nothing too awe- inspiring. And so forth.

In Conclusion: A good Nam Nai Choi film but certainly not his best. It's worth a look if you can find it.
