A Bloody Fight

A Bloody Fight fits the late 1980's Hong Kong action movie template to a tee, with Norman Chu starring as an assassin trying to get out of "the life". But, of course, his bosses won't let him go that easily, which leads to a claret-soaked path of destruction that's fun for the whole family -- if your last name happens to be Manson.

Anyway, the movie is pedestrian in pretty much every way, with the only notable point being the level of violence dished out.

Reviewer Score: 6

Summary: shut up, my wife and son is exploded...

fai (gordon liu) and keung (norman chu) grew up together, were best friends and sparring partners. when keung gets into trouble, mainly gambling related, he and fai's lives veer off in different directions. while fai joins the police, becoming a cid officer, keung enters a life of crime. keung is now a ruthless killer for hire but, with a wife (wong aau) and child (?) at home, he is looking to retire. however, as we all know, it's pretty hard to just walk away from the triads: now tragedy looks set to reunite fai and keung...

well, i was mainly drawn to this by norman chu, of whom i'm a big fan, but gordon liu, chor yuen and a host of familiar faces provide back up. the film itself plays out with a selection of equally familiar devices and plot turns, but is very entertaining with it. the drama errs on the melodramatic, the action is bloody and violent, mixing gun-play and martial arts; although it won't provide any surprises, it makes for a thoroughly entertaining film.

good stuff...
