Don't. Just don't.
Only the most rabid of Chow Yun-Fat fans will want to see this film, let along own it. (I must admit I own a copy.) This is far below the standards of even the "B" pictures which were his bread-and-butter in the early days after he left television for films (it's hard to believe today he was once nicknamed "box office poison"). Execrable production values, a muddy and trite plot, annoying music and unlikeable characters make this film one that you will want to watch only for one of two reasons: 1) You have to see everything in which Chow Yun-Fat has appeared or 2) you are planning a Hong Kong version of "Mystery Science Theatre 3000".
Chow Yun-Fat sleepwalks through this role; Rosamund Kwan is pretty but that's about it. Most of the actors seem to be embarrassed to be there. Me too.
