Excellent, if your into that stuff.
9 August 1999 | by See all my reviews

First of all a previous user who commented on this movie has a very bad taste in movies. I think this film is an excellent portrayal of Chinese Gangster life. It shows in depth the struggles of Asian mobsters in Hong Kong and how things are dealt with Asian style. The so called fuzzy scenes are typical of Chinese movies. So, in my opinon if your interested in the on goings of Asian Gang Warfare in Hong Kong this is an excellent film. If you're looking for a movie with an actual plot and meaning to it, go watch the Red Violin or something.
