Audience Reviews for Once a Gangster

I see the writer-director Felix Chong brings back the Young and Dangerous boys in a triad movie satire about aging gangsters thrust into a potential gang war where only one can emerge victorious. This film was clearly done on the cheap, and Chong doesn't compensate well. Many scenes take place in distracting darkness, where the shadows seem to exist only to hide the fact that they couldn't afford quality art direction. The performances are wildly uneven too, with many of the actors seemingly acting against rather than with one another. For a first-time solo effort, Chong does a passable job, but there's room for improvement.
