"There are a lot of good things to say about this movie. First of all it has a good look. The visual appeal of it is going to keep you watching for at least a little while. It also has good actors. Simon Yam gives a great performance, and Alex Fong and Kent Cheng do pretty good. The movie is interesting at times, but the biggest letdown is the action. There's tons of fights, but it's not choreographed very well and nothing really exciting happens. It's not Dog Bite Dog bad, but don't go into this expecting good action. If you are a Simon Yam megafan, then you have to see this, otherwise, there's plenty of other good Chinese gangster flicks out there that actually deliver with high suspense, good action... things that I look for in a movie.
I don't really have much to say about this movie, I just wanted to tell people to seek out the legit Mei Ah DVD, and not the horrible full screen World Media DVD that is being sold here."
