"Wong Jing is a good director, (if you love commercial movies). But in A True Mob Story, which he directed, wrote, and produced. And it surprised me with its complexity and emotions.Andy Lau is Cheung Dee, a low-level triad boss( kinda like ChanHoNam in the First Y&D)He finds himself double-crossed by those he trusts and hunted by those he's hurt.
What happened is that years ago, Cheung saved the boss from the rival triad, and gained his fame and notoriety. But now, he's nothing but a joke to the triad fam.
Then a lawyer Sandy( Gigi Leung) comes into the picture.....see in the movie, Cheung is a good guy. Unfortunately, Wong Jing's triad world is not the one glorified in movies like Young&Dangerous. Cheung being disrespected by people comes from the fact that him being righteous is inot good in the world of triad, he becomes everyone's witch and whipping boy. It isn't until Dee takes a stand and fights back that he regains his self-respect. This is Andy's one of best performances ever, not as good as *Moment of Romance* i guess, but it's still pretty good."

"True Mob Story is a great movie. It has everything-romance, humor, and a lot of violence-so I would not recommend it at all for children. Everyone else should definitely see this. The storyline is good and there a lot of action and fighting scenes but the fighting scenes are a bit weak since Andy Lau isn't much of an action hero (not your Jet Li or Jacky Chan). You will be shocked by the surprise ending!"
