An Heroic Bloodshed never dies
Leon Lai teams up with Lau Chin-Wan to defeat two triad lords. This film made me remember the "old" heroic bloodshed´s - like "The Killer", "Hard Boiled" or the genesis of it all, "A Better Tomorrow". There´s still hope for Hong Kong cinema lovers... A superb movie. A true masterpiece. A fantastic mise-en-scene - stylised and romantic - from Hong Kong craftman Johnnie To. Where primitive cinema meets barroquian style and women nature becomes truly fundamental...
