| ...what's with the pigeons?...
the prior reviewer wrote " a noteworthy lead role performance from andy lau ", or something of the sort. ...uhhhh, i'm sorry but, nottt! there was actually a very noteworthy performance but it didn't come from andy, i think he tried( he also produced ) but just wasn't up for a above average performance. unfortunately, he was just average and that was one of two things that kill a potentially great action genre movie.

my other gripe with the movie is that even though every action scene was performed in top-notch form, a couple of them were just way way over the top to the point that it make me snicker. on top of that there were another couple of action scenes that were very very hard to believe. the tracer bullets i think were more for the viewers of the movie.

...now, for the good. lam ka tung in a break-out leading man role finally. if lam wasn't in this movie, it would've been a disaster. he was a joy to watch and hes been a little better in other movies but never in the leading role.

even though i mentioned before that some of the action was too unbelievable, there were two that were very very memorable. there were a lot of action scenes and every one was well done, as campy as some of them were.

there was a very pretty leading lady who didn't get much screen time, a couple of big time actors in the leading villain roles ( ray lui and hu jun ), plus a whole slew of solid character actors. the cinematography was decent and if andy lau had turned in a grittier performance it still would've been a great action movie, even with some campy action scenes.

even with all its faults " firestorm ", is still a good action movie and there was some tension and gripping scenes in the movie. still too bad though..., it could've been a special one.
