| Triad gangster politics... yawn...
Having never seen another "Young and Dangerous" movie, watching part 6 in isolation is rather like viewing a single episode of a long-running soap-opera, in which you have no idea who the characters are or what their backgrounds might be.

The film is surprisingly talky, with lots of double-dealing and back-stabbing, and the odd action set-piece to spice things up. The sub-plot concerns Chicken's attempts at communicating with his new Japanese wife (the highlights of the film, very funny). The moral of the tale seems to be "why can't we (Taiwan, Hong Kong, Beijing, Japan) just get along?".

Overall, its all rather baffling to an outsider, and I would definitely recommend watching the previous films in the series first.
