I guess this is a 1.5 star movie because altho there is alot of action, most of them are copied. Shu Qi's character is practicallly useless. The scopes on the guns are useless primarily because the characters dont use it. And there is not much story and character developement. Also, like most Leon Lai movies, Leon has one constant emtion throughout the film. However, all said and done, Im giving it an extra mark because this is the kind of movie I could make to launch my directing career. It would be like a trial run for me to direct the genre I really want to be known for, action.
