Flaming Brothers (1987)

Summary: Disappointing
Starts out okay. Chow and Tang, boyhood friends, grow up to be an effective gangster team. Then they separate, for no apparent reason. I agree that the lack of subtitles is a problem here. Tang goes to Bangkok and teams up with a boxing gangster. Both men find love. They meet up again, and marry their girlfriends, but Tang chews Chow out over something (no idea what).
This film is basically dull, lack of subs notwithstanding. It can't seem to decide between being a gangster actioner or a romance. Much more screen time is spent on the latter, and it's very DULL. I couldn't watch it to the end.
