Trivia

This was the first Hong Kong/Chinese film to be mixed in the Dolby Surround 7.1 encoding system. Coincidentally, Andrew Lau's movie The Avenging Fist (2001) was the first Hong Kong film mixed in the Dolby Digital EX 6.1 surround encoding system. See more »

Goofs

The cinema near the Casablanca is showing Bordertown with Paul Muni and Bette Davis, which would not be made for another ten years. Another poster in the same place seems to be showing Berkeley Square, which is another anachronism. See more »

Unfocused mess
3 January 2017 | by grandmastersikSee all my reviews

Imagine that an amateur screenwriter shat out a vomit draft and said, "That's Oscar-worthy!" Well, that pretty much describes this mumbled action flick.

In fairness, the script - or final cut - could have been messed up by anyone, so I won't blame the writer, but as an espionage-cum-action thriller, the film is a total dud.

If you're a fan of Donnie Yen (like me!), you'll watch this regardless of how bad anyone tells you it is, and where the big fight at the end nets it an extra star, please don't let the 4/10 fool you into believing that this is half-way decent, because it really is one of the worst Donnie films I've sat through. Which is a shame, because Shu Qi looks as gorgeous as ever and really pours a lot of emotion into her role... which only further highlights how badly the final film lets down both of its main stars.
