A HongKongese solid and large-scale action movie in Hollywood style. The story looks typical but turns out to be hard to guess what happens next. The biggest attraction of the film is its gorgeous casting - Kar-Yan Leung as the hero, Eddy Ko as the villain, and the later-biggest-stars Yun-Fat Chow and Cherie Cheung support them. Ronny Yu, who studied filmmaking abroad and now makes films in Hollywood, brings freshness to Hong Kong action film making. The detail settings - like enemies wearing skating shoes on ice or the Chinese Ninja villain - don't bother you much, if scenes with them are as carefully made as this film. I don't think this film is better than traditional HongKongese action films, but this film is definitely a unique one worth to watch.
