This dreadful flick meant almost nothing to non-Taiwanese viewers.
The "Island of Greed" (Taiwan) is flooded with "Black Gold" (dirty money). Leung plays the mob boss trying to get into politics, Lau plays his police adversary. As one would expect, an army of dogs is released on Lau and his teammates when they assault a tea plantation. And of course, gangs of taxi drivers riot with flames a plenty. Some good action, but too long. Nominated for Best Action Choreography, lost to "Downtown Torpedoes".
Not bad, but could have been a lot better. It comes off a bit like propaganda at times and definitely has a few wtf? moments.
This movie has got the cast speak in mandarin and collaborating with taiwan actors. Good acting from Andy & Tony.
