Excellent little shocker
8 January 2004 | by fertilecelluloidSee all my reviews

This Billy Tang vehicle is relentlessly grim and relentlessly entertaining. I love that.

Fatty (Kent Chang) accidentally orders a hit on his wife and creates a huge debt for himself that must be repaid. Since Fatty can not repay it, others repay it instead -- with their lives.

Watching a fat guy stress and sweat and fall in a blubbering heap is a highly entertaining experience that must be seen to be believed. The torching of a little girl by super-villain Simon Yam (in a superbly over-the-top performance) pushes the boundaries of on-screen depictions and the gloriously violent finale, where Fatty becomes an unstoppable monster, really delivers the chills.

Danny Lee makes an appearance as -- what else? -- a cop, but he's as useful as pockets on a singlet and never manages to put so much as a dent in the gory proceedings.

Director Tang was on a roll with this, RED TO KILL and DR. LAMB.

This is mostly an action pic, but it also falls into the horror category simply because it doesn't know when to quit being grotesque. Love that, too.
