Audience Reviews for King of Triads
Dennis Law's gangland action isn't bad and the storyline filled with blood, betrayal and glowering badasses only ups the ante. I was surprised to see Audrey (Bernice Liu) transformed from family good girl to tough-as-nails female fighter.
Simon Yam is listed as the star of this movie, but it really is Andy On. He has developed into a genuinely skilled martial artist with a tough guy attitude and he has plenty of scenes in this movie to show it off. I like the mysterious mute girl, Dumby played by Lu Zia Jiany who beats several gangsters and bodyguards by herself.
Dennis Law's Hong Kong action thriller, Bad Blood, comes through with the action.At just under 90 minutes, Bad Blood plays out like a typical Hong Kong crime thriller, except there is martial arts instead of bullet ballets. As for the story, it doesn't seem all that great at first, but gradually it and the characters become more interesting as things unravel.A flurry of action sequences light up the screen and the martial arts choreography is impressive. The sound effects, while not the greatest, successfully give impact to the hits. Fans of martial arts will not be disappointed with a lot of the real time butt whooping that takes place.While Simon Yam is the veteran to this type of film, along with some of the other supporting cast members, it is Bernice Liu that surprises with her change of persona, as she puts the film on her shoulders. Andy On, Luxia Jiang, Xin Xin Xiong, and even Bernice Liu deliver on the action.Bad Blood isn't groundbreaking in anyway. It is just an entertaining piece of work from Dennis Law.
Hong Kong Cinema is still alive. If you like the old films, you should like this one. Some old stars [Yam] and some new ones [Liu]. Downbeat ending just like in the 80's and 90's. The action is pretty cool and some cool heroes and villains.
