Movie Info

Frankie Chan Fan-kei directs and stars in this tight-scripted gangster thriller yarn. The film opens with the triad clan's patriarch getting whacked by his brother Chau Hsiong (Ko Chuen-hisang). With the leadership of the family up in the air, Chau tries to enlist the help of his vacillating nephew, Wai (Miu Kiu-wai), to help him knock off Tat-hwa (Simon Yam Tat-wah), the patriarch's son and family heir apparent. Yet when the family matron learns of Chau's evil schemes, she orders a hit out on him. Chau manages to escape, but his son and daughter aren't so lucky. Chau calls on his surviving son Chi-shau (Chan), who is living in Europe, to help him out. Chi-shau returns with a gang of roughnecks looking for revenge. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi
