nice acting
3 September 2000 | by AzzySee all my reviews

I enjoy Ringo Lam's movies, so I took a Chance and borrowed this movie from the library, and wasn't disappointed. Sammo hung's Character was far more developed than in most of his movies, and his acting surprisingly good. also great is Kwong Leung Wong (who played Eddie Wong in John Woo's THE KILLER) as the head muscle Villian. he plays the character more believably than most, as a violent thug with alot of bravado, which is a refreshing change from the Usual Psychos. also in the movie is Lam Chung (BETTER TOMORROW 2, The victim of the first hit in THE KILLER, and Mr. Leung {The Kneecaping Victim} in BULLET IN THE HEAD) as the main Villian. The action is exellent as usual from the director, especially since it rarely resorts to tricks such as slow motion editing. in fact this happens to make it seem more violent. Sammo fights well especially at the end where they give him a cool visual reference to the one armed swordsman. There is a car chase and many explosions shootings and brutal beatings. my only complaint is that there are some awful attempts at humor involving sammo's mother. perhaps i didn't get it because of cultural differences. this movie spoke to me in the universal language, VIOLENCE! 8/10
