Movie Info

Taylor Wong delivers this gangster saga about brotherhoood and betrayal. Bumptious, ill-tempered Yung (Man Chi-leung) has run up a huge gambling debt is about to get his finger loped off for non-payment until his more levelheaded brother, Kwok (Andy Lau), intercedes. When Yung's troubles become too great for even Kwok to handle, they turn to Chai (Chow Yun-fat), a big-time gangster who hires the two to aid with his business ventures. Enthusiastic and dependable, Kwok quickly becomes Chai's right-hand man, much to Yung's displeasure. When a Thai drug lord stops shipment to Chai, underworld tensions build. Eventually Yung shows his true self and joins the other side, setting the stage for bloody gangland violence. This film is followed up by Tragic Hero. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi

Fans of HK crime drama may be tempted to see this because of the big name partnership of Chow Yun Fat and Andy Lau, but despite their star presence, this is a very lacklustre affair. Other than the inclusion of some nice locations, the direction is flat and lifeless; the rare action scenes lack style and are unexciting and the plot is hackneyed and sentimental-the scene where Chow Yun Fat and his girlfriend start nursing an injured puppy is one of the most laughable I've ever seen! But by far the biggest handicap for a non-cantonese speaker were the appalling subtitles. I needed a translator for the translations...
