A low budget movie that looks like a million bucks.
25 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

It was hard to believe the budget on which this movie was shot, as it puts most of the big budget Hong Kong (not to mention Hollywood) movies to shame in the cinematography stakes. This is the story of the fabled honest cop, who loses his gun during a drunken night at his brother's wedding, and his subsequent efforts to recover it. It is at once surreal, hilarious, paranoiac, and exhilarating... a real rollercoaster of a movie. The acting is superb, the scenery gorgeous, and the direction as tight as a drum. If you have not yet seen this one, do yourself a favour, and seek it out at your nearest Chinatown DVD shop. You won't regret it.
