Storyline

A young man, Toh (Hugo Ng Doi-Yung) is on trial for the brutal murder of his brother, Wah (William Ho Ka-Kui). As the court case unfolds and witnesses take the stand, a horrific tale of sibling abuse, domestic violence and all-round thuggery ensues: Toh was subject to frequent attacks by Wah whenever he returned to the family home after being released from prison; one attack in which he was kicked in the groin having caused a defect of the reproductive system that results in lack of function of the testes and as a result unable to have penetrative intercourse. This physical castration leads to the breakdown in the relationship between Toh and his long-term girlfriend Jenny (Lily Chung Suk-Wai) and a festering resentment between the brothers. However, Wah's almost hyper-masculine aggression is not only directed at his adopted brother, but is also vented against his beautiful wife (Chan Pooi-Kei) and long-suffering parents. Wah is forever after money to finance his gambling and drug ... Written by lament

Mediocre Shocker
3 December 2002 | by GathofBaalSee all my reviews

Billy Tang is a great director, but this is nowhere near his classic Red To Kill or even Dr Lamb. Stars Cat. III regulars Lily Chung, Ka-Kui Ho and Money Lo. Gorehounds will be disappointed, while packed with soft core sex, there is no violence until the end. Ka-Kui Ho plays a sleazy criminal, who routinely terrorizes his family when not in prison. He burns his son with cigarettes, robs his mother, rapes his wife, and even attempts to rape his adopted brother's girlfriend. The brother can finally stand no more and attacks him in the bloody finale. Well directed, but very slow and uninvolving. Lacks the energy of Tang's other films. Worth a watch, but don't buy it.
