    Supercool mobster Mark is a man of honour in a world of crime. His partner HO is having second thoughts because kid brother Kit is an ambitious cop. Kit remains blissfully ignorant until Ho is double-crossed, their father is murdered and Ho is imprisoned.
    Mark swears to avenge his friend, but his right leg is shattered in the ensuing shoot out, a legendary scene of sensationally choreographed gunplay. When Ho leaves the slammer he find the crippled Mark reduced to scrubbing dirt off the boss`s stretch limo.

    9 / 10
    Absolutely brilliant. One of the best films ever made. Fantastic plot, brilliant acting, super direction and soundtrack. This film is entertaining from start to finish. It deals with themes of honour, pride, revenge, friendship and courage.
    The action scenes are unbelievable. The main characters are very likeable and sympathetic. This is the Chinese version of the Godfather and in my opinion, a lot better.
    Go see it NOW.
