Memories!
6 January 2003 | by JinxsterJonesSee all my reviews

I like this film! It's not the greatest of movies to come out of HK, but it's fun and fast, with an edge! I also had the good luck to be in HK for the millenium celebrations when this movie was showing, so I saw it on the big screen in the heart of HK, so maybe that atmosphere made the movie better in my memory. I'd love to see it again if anyone knows where I can get a copy!
