Danny Lee Sau Yin plays against type.
16 July 2002 | by laadolfSee all my reviews

Danny Lee Sau Yin plays against type in this interesting tale of a the relationship of a pair of brothers, set against triad and pop star pressures.Lee plays Bee, a triad smuggler who returns to Hong Kong from overseas, flush with money. An international jewel thief and smuggler, he has NEVER smuggled drugs-which puts him into conflict with the triad boss who fences his stolen gems. Bee wants nothing more than to retire from the criminal life and use his ill-gotten gains to improve the lives of himself, his mother and younger brother. The brother played by Aaron Kwok, attends a performing arts academy and excels as both a singer and a dancer. Bee buys a nightclub and his brother performs there to good reception. Bee's refusal to smuggle drugs comes back to haunt him as the triad boss exacts revenge for his disobedience. Betrayed and set up for a drug charge, Bee's world falls apart, affecting everyone he loves, even as his brother, who now shuns him, becomes a rising star. Danny Lee all too often is typecast playing cops (famously, Inspector Eagle Li in Woo's "The Killer"), type-casting he doesn't seem to mind as his original life's ambition was to be a policeman. But in roles like this, he shows us his versatility and breathes life and depth into a world weary criminal trying to go straight against the odds. Lee is an under-appreciated talent in the Hong Kong film world. Aaron Kwok is appealing as Bee's brother especially in moments of brotherly bonding and betrayal. The supporting cast are all excellent. In short, a good solid film with excellent performances
