Audience Reviews for Gu huo zi: Zhi ren zai jiang hu (Young and Dangerous)

Not bad, but nothing really amazing about this. There's many films from Hong Kong like this that came previously, but it's entertaining and watchable despite the lack of action and violence. The characters were likable and none too annoying, though Simon Yam should have had a larger role. It's a little too cheesy at times in it's attempts to be hip and cool but that adds to the appeal.

While most of the films in this franchise are pretty much interchangable this one, along with the second film, are not that bad at all. Jordan Chan is a lot of fun to watch, and Francis Ng and Simon Yam are in this.

One of the highlights of 1990 Hong Kong Cinema, cementing the stardom of Ekin Cheng and Jordan Chan.
