Conceived of as an obvious cash in on the "heroic bloodshed" genre... this gangster drama ...lacks the special something needed to elevate it out of the pack.

Audience Reviews for Jiang hu long hu men (Flaming Brothers) (Dragon and Tiger Fight)

½

The first collaboration of the producer (and leading actor) Alan Tang and writer Kar-wai Wong who later make "As Tears Go By" together. It has overwhelming violence and human drama of great depth. What makes this film different from other Hong Kong mafia action is probably the clear position against violence which is symbolized with the ending. Destructive and dark conclusion that Wong, as a screenplay writer, always prepares for the hero is strong message about emptiness of violence. In terms of style, it's quite orthodox, but it strengthens the drama of bond between the two men and between them and their lovers. Alan Tang and Yun-fat Chow give vivid and passionate performances, and the heroin Pat Ha's beauty is standing out in this very manly picture. This film is very valuable also to know where Kar-wai Wong's origin is. An overlooked masterpiece.

Great non-stop action with two peformances Chow Yun-Fat and Alan Tong combine with Joe Cheung's skillful direction to deliver a powerful but tragic gangland thriller with the brutal realism of Scarface.
