| watchable, but dont expect too much from this
Well, its not good, but it aint bad either. This film uses kinda the same premise of young and dangerous, but it suppose to be set earlier. The thing is, that it isnt really a prequel cause things just dont, and cannot flow on to young and dangerous. Just take this movie as maybe and alternative prequel to young and dangerous in another world.

The plot is pretty bare, so are the lines, but the chick, Carmen lee, is a total babe! This film is all style over substance, unfortunately theres not much style, and even less substance.

When watching, just dont think about the other young and dangerous films, i guess this is a kinda stand alone film. I wouldnt pay money to watch it in the cinema, but its good enough for video. Oh, the film is about two rival societies, but mainly about the son of one societies leaders. Father and son arnt on good terms, but something happens to father, so son has to avenge. You know the deal. The son is played by tony leung, who is supose to be great with the knife...Bits of starwars here, dont see, feel! and also a little bit of bloodsport as well! Jordan Chan plays his loser sidekick, pretty silly at times. His character is meant to be the same as young and dangerous, but theyre pretty much different. Anyway, enough from me. Its ok to watch, but nothing to write home about.
