A drama with some bloodshed
26 February 2006 | by chrichtonsworldSee all my reviews

This title doesn't do justice to the genre heroic bloodshed! Yes, there is bloodshed en yes it is heroic,but for the most part it is a story about a relationship between two friends (Alan Tang and Chow Yan Fat) who happen to be gangsters. Let's face it,compared to John Woo titles: Better Tomorrow series, Hard Boiled, the Killer! This movie doesn't have a chance! There is not enough action to make this movie worthwhile. But the acting is outstanding by Chow Yan Fat and Alan Tang. Furthermore there is not much of intrigue or excitement,so why should i watch this movie! Still Alan Tang really has potential for greater action drama's than this one! Return Engagement is an example how this movie could be!
