Movie Info

Three desperate characters who share troublesome relationships with their fathers meet on the mean streets of Hong Kong in this violent crime drama. Pang (Edison Chen) is a tough, violent and nearly sociopathic teenager who has made his way from Cambodia to Hong Kong to become a hired killer after proving his talent for violence on the underground boxing circuit. After killing his first target in a restaurant after eating the victim's dinner, Pang hides out in a garbage dump on the edge of town, where he meets Yue (Pei Pei), a homeless girl who lives there with her father. When Pang sees the father forcing himself sexually upon Yue, he attacks the man, killing him; Pang takes Yue under his wing, and the girl's innocence, which has survived despite her dreadful circumstances, brings out a humanity in Pang that he didn't realize he still possessed. However, Pang is still wanted by the law as Wai (Sam Lee), a gadfly police detective whose father, a beat cop, is fighting for his life in a Hong Kong hospital.

One can't help but brand the final 15 minutes of this film as one of the most glaring cases of self-sabotage since the twist-ending of M. Night Shyamalan's The Village.

Audience Reviews for Dog Bite Dog

very gritty hk melodrama that goes way over the top by films end. Viloent and gory at times, but competent acting and basically holds your interest till the end. Brutal and searing tale, not for everyone!

Brutal film about dehumanization. Many actions scenes, but somehow manages not to glorify violence, showing it instead as repelling. Action fans may dislike the film for this reason, but its dark realism certainly makes it stand out.

Good Cat III film with great performances from the leads. There are some questionable scenes and character moments, but as a gritty mano e mano fight to the death film this is great

Starts well, then it gets mushy and melodramatic as it progress until the stupidity of certain situations and characters sinks the whole thing. Very solid direction mind you, Edison Chen sort of gets into the character, but Sam Lee is the obvious scene stealer here. The guy doesn't need much acting skills for the role, he already looks like a creep.
