This storyline somewhat mimics A Better Tomorrow 2, with an awesome ending, and a north American angle (except this one take place in Vancouver). Except this one doesn't have the better actor nor is the storyline any good. Plot: A head of the Chinese mafia in Canada kills some Itialian Mafia Boss in front of the police, therefore he went to jail for more than a decade (doesn't say). He left his daughter in Hong Kong, so after he was released from jail he wants to reunited with his daughter. He soon finds out that her daughter escaped the orphan home and his only clue is the other girl who escaped with her. But that girl has her own problem.
Andy Lau is in like 10 mins of the film... this wasn't that bad of a movie, with a excellent gun-fu ending, just up right there with ABT 2 (but less realistic). The storyline is not that good, it was mediocre, and wasn't as touching has ABT 2. Though the baddie is more unrealistic in this movie but he is very evil (played by Simon Yam). He is a character that not man of his word. The acting is not that good compared to ABT either, with everyone acting unrealistic (well maybe except the main character). There wasn't anything brilliant in this movie, but i do like the location in Canada. In the beginning, in the Canada warfare between Itailian and Chinese, that was just hilarious. It soooooooo stupid, and the interview from the mafia boss from reporter is stupid too.
