Reviews 80% Audience Score 100+ Ratings
Small-time gangster Wong Ah-kau (Ching-Wan Lau) gets two job offers that could change his life. First, an associate asks him to transport some cars to mainland China. It's easy work, for a lot of money, that could be his ticket to the big time. A more risky opportunity comes Ah-kau's way soon after, when he's asked to do a contract killing in Taiwan. It's a difficult choice, but this quirky crime flick has it both ways, as it shows the violent results of either path. Read More Read Less

Audience Member An old movie, but still worth to watch today. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member A fun, crazy variation on the triads films. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Bello! Molto originali sia la sceneggiatura che le scelte visive, raffinato l'umorismo nero della prima parte, indovinata la resa drammatica della seconda metà. Peccato per la qualità del supporto e dei sottotitoli, altrimenti forse me lo sarei goduto anche di più :( Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews
