Frantic HK action
28 June 2019 | by wesc-5-62313See all my reviews

Someone has finally injected some adrenalline into a lacklustre HK film industry. Full of unrealistic and stylised action, hardly pauses to let the viewer catch his breath. Ahh it reminds me of the 80's when HK cinema was leading the way in over the top action cinema. I loved the near monochrome wash and constant rain. Of course the plot was light and predictable but since when did that matter in a stylish updated homage to the golden days of HK cinema. If you don't know what I'm referring too - you are not old enough.
