Audience Reviews for Gau ngao gau (Dog Bite Dog)


Starts well, then it gets mushy and melodramatic as it progress until the stupidity of certain situations and characters sinks the whole thing.

Very solid direction mind you, Edison Chen sort of gets into the character, but Sam Lee is the obvious scene stealer here. The guy doesn't need much acting skills for the role, he already looks like a creep.

very gritty hk melodrama that goes way over the top by films end. Viloent and gory at times, but competent acting and basically holds your interest till the end. Brutal and searing tale, not for everyone!

Brutal film about dehumanization. Many actions scenes, but somehow manages not to glorify violence, showing it instead as repelling. Action fans may dislike the film for this reason, but its dark realism certainly makes it stand out.
