Movie Info

Philip Chan spins this low-budget gangland saga shot and set in New York's Chinatown. Brothers Mickey and Paul Lee (Simon Yam and Tam Pak-pan respectively) arrive in the Big Apple with two wildly different ambitions. While Mickey simply wants a study and get ahead, Paul wants to become a big-name drug dealer. When Mickey accidentally runs afoul of local Chinese gang The Red Eagles, Paul joins their rival, The Dragons. When a couple members of Red Eagles jump Mickey, he is saved by his brother who kills a few of the assailants and then flees to Toronto. Realizing that he must stand up for himself, Mickey rallies together some of his like-minded friends and lays waste to the Red Eagle's HQ. Impressed by his bravado, Chan (Ouitan Han) grants Mickey some gangland turf, while arranging for Paul to be killed. When Mickey learns that he's been betrayed, all hell breaks loose. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovimore
