Watched this more than 7 times to appreciate its fullness!
9 July 2017 | by thomasheeSee all my reviews

I have watched this film more than 7 times, review, rewind to catch some of the moments, character and conversation that i missed out in previous viewing.

The 1st time when i saw it, i must admit, i was not able to catch the full meaning and why certain characters behaved the way they did and missed out some small conversations but are critical to the plot.

But with each viewing my understanding of each character, sequence, and the entire story improves.

This is a very well crafted movie that deserves nothing less than a 10/10 rating. The story is so well crafted, the characters so well acted, the conversations so well spoken and planned for you have to go through the film a few more times to fully appreciate if you find it hard to give it a 10/10 rating.

I am very sure you will appreciate it more if you take your time to know what it is trying to portray.

This is the only movie i have watched so many rounds and enjoy every session. The highlight is the exchange quick spats between Sean Lau and MB Lee when MB Lee came to confront Lau why Lau shot at his son.

This sequence is so difficult to do and as an artiste myself, i know it really takes a lot to do this sequence so perfectly well and yet these 2 veteran actors did it so effortlessly!

Go buy the original DVD and enjoy the show over and over again! This is one of the BEST the industry has to offer.
