When John Woo's, The Killer, was all the rage, when Ringo Lam's, Full Contact, was the best film I'd ever seen and long, long before Korea took the crown of best action films made in Asia, Hong Kong was the go to place to get your kicks.
Thankfully, people like Benny Chan are still in town, so not only did we get the rare instance of a superior remake with his, Connected (orig. Cellular, USA), back in 2008, but now I've discovered this gem from 2013, which is simply made for fans of Hong Kong's golden era, right before Britain's hand-over.

Yes, I'd definitely recommend this one!
Sure, it has its faults, but if you're a red blooded man into heroic deeds, men bonding without the implied subconscious homo-erotica crap that Hollywank inflicts upon its viewers, and you like your action in abundance, then give this film a chance.
And if you're unfamiliar with Hong Kong's glory days of action cinema, you might even rate this higher than I did.
