A story of early Hong Kong. Precursor to the TV mini series Noble House, which is not listable but starred Piers Brosnan.

At first you think your going to get an mgm spectacular with how it begins. Then it goes down hill from there. You can tell it was made in the 80's. The lead actor just makes u not like him.
It glorifies opium smugglers but whats interesting is that it really added to the city/countries growth. Sad ending.

Pretty bad. Should have paid heed to both sets of ratings here. Bryan Brown's "Scottish" accent was laughable, as well as the terrible dialogue poor Joan Chen had to mouth. Even Maurice Jarre's music left a lot to be desired. It was like it was trying to be like Hawaii and just didn't know how. Piss poor.

A sad, sad version of a very great novel. Disappointing would be an understatement.
