Audience Reviews for Long Arm of the Law
The absolute masterpiece of Hong Kong crime action and a milestone of Hong Kong New Wave cinema. Its flowing evolution and sharp, quick editing are almost a miracle. It's not too much to say that almost all Hong Kong action films made later than this one are influenced by this. It produced Johnnie To, of course, and even Quentin Tarantino (he is strongly influenced by this film in making "Reservoir Dogs"). The last gunfight between criminals and cops setting in a Hong Kong's legendary place Kawloon Castle is very powerful and thrilling. AMAZING.
