The Skinny: Entertaining and average action romance featuring milestone histrionics from Simon Yam. The cast might make the film a worthwhile timekiller, but the movie is far from a classic.
Review
by Kozo:
     Average Hong Kong triad action-romance stars Simon Yam as a tough triad boss who decides to go straight when he meets the right woman (Cecilia Yip). Sadly, she owes tons of money to evil loan sharks and thus begins the pain. Yes, said evil loan sharks come after her and IT ALL GOES TO HELL. Roy Cheung eschews his normal evil triad routine for a supporting role as Simon's honorable triad lieutenant.
     This is a decent Hong Kong flick with some gripping moments but also some absolutely boring ones. The acting helps, as Simon Yam and Cecilia Yip imbue their performances with far more dignity than a film of this caliber deserves. Special mention must be given to Yam, who goes postal with his acting in the film's final moments. Awards are questionable, but his histrionics are apparently so powerful that they can actually work miracles! Sometimes laughably melodramatic, this flick can provide an ok - but not great - time. (Kozo 1996)
