Decent HK triad film
'Brothers' is a true to form HK gangster/triad film. I won't get into the plot since previous commenter here did a great job at that.
One of the highlights for me was Andy Lau. He gave a great performance, believable in every sense, and has a great presence. Other highlights for me included a stylish chase scene through narrow streets & alleys involving a 3-wheeled motorbike and 2 cars, and the one of the final gun battles which was very well done.
There was a lot of dialog in the movie, which I like, but I wished there had been a little more action. It was half drama/half action film, more heavily on the drama in my opinion.
Not an incredible film but worthy of watching if you enjoy this genre.
