Gu huo zi: Zhi ren zai jiang hu (Young and Dangerous) Reviews

Not bad, but nothing really amazing about this. There's many films from Hong Kong like this that came previously, but it's entertaining and watchable despite the lack of action and violence. The characters were likable and none too annoying, though Simon Yam should have had a larger role. It's a little too cheesy at times in it's attempts to be hip and cool but that adds to the appeal.

While most of the films in this franchise are pretty much interchangable this one, along with the second film, are not that bad at all. Jordan Chan is a lot of fun to watch, and Francis Ng and Simon Yam are in this.

One of the highlights of 1990 Hong Kong Cinema, cementing the stardom of Ekin Cheng and Jordan Chan.

Well frankly, it's quite a stupid movie but I love the message which this franchise brings, you have to pay back with extremity if you went down the extreme road. It's not that I'm discouraging anyone from aspiring to become the next godfather, but just be aware of what entails

Being a rascal (triad) has never been so noble and has never been so much fun, either, than in Andrew Lau's controversial adaptation of the popular Teddy Boy comic that struck a cord with impressionable viewers and touched a raw nerve with the government and critics alike.

Manfred Wong, who wrote and produced "Young and Dangerous," tailors his primary cast of obnoxious low ranking punks (Ekin Cheng, Jordan Chan, Jerry Lamb, and Michael Tse) in such a way that attempts to convince his audience these young thugs (or "teddy boys") would never hurt anyone who didn't already have it coming and are all [mostly] above the deplorable acts often synonymous with organized crime.

Apparently the kids bought it: "Young and Dangerous" proved the surprise hit of 1996 and proliferated two sequels that same year, in addition to three more official sequels, two spinoffs, and two prequels all in a span of four years.

Parallel to past Andrew Lau projects "Young and Dangerous" is a train wreck of a film but one whose entertainment value is derived from your inability to look away.

Interesting movie that goes from a violent and proud of it, to very comedic then back to a dark dark film.
