One of the best made-for-TV movies ever.
As with all Woo's films, you can see his ease and experience as a director. Everything has harmony and flows along very nicely. The actors were well picked and did a good job at playing their roles. A ton of action, great humor, and a bit of love and mystery, all mixed together to make the best made-for-TV movie that I've seen so far. I'd say 7/10, which is more than most TV movies get.
