The storyline is good but I blame for the directorship that created so much coincidences, exaggerations, illogical fighting moves and against natural body movements.
I do not why its nominated, perhaps HK movie had deteriorated like in years 2000s creating massive lousy movie just only to make money. Another reason is the judges for these awards are low standards and non real critics.
The wave is fake and it created a Rambo 1 fight against 100? Everywhere has guns nowadays and they still use 1 small knife to fight in a storm? The worst, why only the boss carry a knife? The whole scene only use knife as though we are still in the 80s that guns are still too expensive to own.
There are a lot of illogical scenes that the director had ignored and does not make any sense.
I only can give this movie slightly above average according to HK movie standards.
