Routine Chinese gangster piece.
18 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

Unfortunate that this routine HK gangsters & gags piece re-surfaces because of the Wong Ka Wai connection when so many major films from the colonial industry have been ignored.

The orphans grown to become underworld figures come into conflict when the imprisoned heavy leaves his old friend in charge of both his mistresses. Hark and Tsang are so young looking with skilled comic Tsang working against type as a heroic juvenile who even gets to scoop up his love interest from a moving car in slow motion.

The coloured gel lit Hong Kong club scene is quite vivid but comedy is totally unfunny and at odds with the serious elements.

This one is an odd glimpse of major talents in their early years, of little interest to the English speaking market so often unfamiliar with their important films.
