Full Contact Reviews
"Full Contact" proves the old adage that it is not a good sign if the opening credits sequence is superimposed over a scene at a strip club. Overall, the movie is a seriously dated action movie that is very violent, often times needlessly so.(You would think thieves would show more subtlety and restraint when carrying out jobs, wouldn't you?) But thankfully, the movie does get better in its second half, as it gets more thoughtful with a few directorial flourishes from Ringo Lam thrown in. That still does not help it escape being little more than a B movie that might have once been shown at 3:00 am on HBO.
(1992) Full Contact
(In Chinese with English subtitles)
This is not your typical John Woo action or bank heist film. But what sticks out are the style and the set ups which looks so cool is when Chow Yun Fat does things especially wearing leather duds and the retribution psyche on his mind. One of my favorite 'out of the ordinary' films with an awesome Chinese beat soundtrack by Alan Tam at the end.
The film casts him as a charismatic thief who does his best to look out for his friend and ends up on a mission of vengeance after a terrible betrayal.
Well worth a rental for any action fan.
