Movie Info

Derek Yee Tung-sing remakes Jacob Cheung's Goodbye Hero with this tale about an aging stuntman and motorcycle racer. Joe's (Andy Lau Tak-wah) formerly stellar career is languishing with a suspended license. Worse, he hates his father and is bored by his timid, dull girlfriend, Yee (Gigi Leung Wing-kei). Some young hotshot named David Kwan (David Wu Tai-wai), who has joined his father's racing team, is threatening to top him on the racing circuit. With new license in hand, Joe gets into an ugly accident that lands him in the hospital for a very long time. There, Joe re-evaluates his life and realizes what is really important to him.

Audience Reviews for Lie huo zhan che (Full Throttle)


Derek Yee's crotch rocket opera takes few if any of the risks that lifted the director's preceding endeavor (1993's "C'est la Vie Mon Cheri") above the various trappings of the romance genre. Yee, to his credit keeps the melodrama agreeable due largely in part to lead Andy Lau who plays his role as a rogue with parental issues sincerely and promising new comer Gigi Leung who co-stars as Lau's uncomfortably on-again-off-again girlfriend. That aside, audiences attracted to the film's title and to the prospect of white knuckle street racing directed by car crash connoisseur Bruce Law might leave feeling cheated by Yee's indifference to the illegal sport. Others may walk out wondering about that look co-star David Ng Dai-wai has in his eye every time he comes into contact with Lau.
