If this was the first Hong Kong movie you ever saw, it would likely be the last. For a more experienced viewer, this edgy, dark film should satisfy. I love Leung's Beyond Hypothermia [which would likely make my list of the top 25 films of the 90's].

With a strong screenplay and an excellent cast, the director explores many themes found in his earlier films. The highly stylized "boxing" scenes are very cool, considering that the action director's have worked on some of the best MA films ever made.

On a humorous note, that goofy Dutch guy who pissed off Jackie Chan during the making of Who Am I? got himself in another movie.

Reviewer Score: 8
