Superb Triad movie
27 November 1999 | by Jat-7See all my reviews

This is an excellent Chinese gangster movie, a tale of a man who, having relinquished his place in the Triads, finds himself thrust back into it unprepared on the death of his father. More thoughtful than many in the genre, its complex plot and good camerawork make it a masterpiece. Chow Yun-Fat is not in his typical 'silent gunman' type role, using more emotion to great effect as someone who is clearly distasteful of the violence surrounding him but is slowly forced to become part of it to survive. I am a big fan of both the actor and the genre, but nevertheless this film is a head above most other Triad movies due to its well developed plot and high production values. Get it on DVD now.
