A simmering pot of blood and yucks, accented with guitar and harmonica on the soundtrack.

The finale is a slow-motion tour de force that blends style, elegance and nuance of character in showers of blood.

Exiled is creative and bizarre, maybe too bizarre, but since most action films adhere to a cookie-cutter formula, its quirkiness is most welcome.

To packs the moments of contemplation with as much suspense as the action sequences and is a master of ratcheting up tension through small details.

Johnnie To, the director, is highly respected in this genre, and I suppose he does it about as well as you'd want it to be done, unless you wanted acting and more coherence.

This 2006 Hong Kong-produced gangster film by director Johnnie To, set in Macao, is an entertaining product that presents a powerful artistic vision.

Even those wary of [director] To's eastern/western ethos cannot help but admire the stern panache of the best sequences.

This flamboyant, Peckinpah-ish ode to male bonding has a melancholy, fin de siècle splendor.
August 31, 2007
It's a boozy, weekend-bender of an action flick, lovely to look at and perhaps just a little bit silly.

Exiled is a grabber from start to finish that should win new fans for cult-favorite To.

The Macao settings are beautifully rendered, and the dark humor is often very funny.

This tale of childhood buddies turned hit men is the kind of film where flames roar, waves crash and dropped bullets thud like bowling balls.

I'd put [Johnnie] To's Exiled into the category of Hong Kong movies that even people who think they don't care about Hong Kong movies should see.
August 29, 2007
One of those wearisome Hong Kong action movies where characters engage in Mexican standoffs not so much to ratchet up excitement or generate tension but rather to look cool for as long as possible.

If you've never seen a Johnnie To crime picture, Exiled is a simple, stylish, and utterly delightful introduction.
June 14, 2007
It's cool, thematically involving, knowing and sustained in its tension. Are you watching, Michael Mann?
September 13, 2006
A terrific ensemble gangster movie with dark humor amid tragic circumstances.
