Outstanding movie
20 January 2018 | by hcnj-79021See all my reviews

This movie is not related to the 86 version. The story happens in present day China regarding smugglers. But it doesn't just show the tenseness of crime activities. The brotherhood among the main characters is very touching. I like this movie because the story is realistic and the roles are of ordinary people that we may come across in our lives. The gun fights and action scenes are not exaggerated and make sense (I have watched movies where the whole Central district of HK was blown up and the main character is still alive, ridiculous). In conclusion, I enjoyed this movie and highly recommend it!
