Woo, one of the great directors of films, presents a story with suspense, themes of honor and loyalty and some moments of good humor. Plus there are some of the best scenes in the history of action cinema, that will make your heart pound and blood race. Woo presents his sequences in the same bloody, hypnotic way that Sam Peckinpah used to do. Woo's movie is a lot more fast-paced. There are good performances by Leung, Fat (Woo's regular action star) and Cheung Jue Lin as the cold-blooded super-killer, Mad Dog. Not even his later American films (Hard Target, Broken Arrow) can match up to this movie. Arnold and Sly's films seem small by comparison.
