It is about the triad gang warfare on Macao and
it traces the character that Simon Yam plays from his entry into the triads
to becoming the big boss. Yam is good, but the film is a steady stream
of one bloody street fight after another until they become quite tedious
and repetitious. Some nice shots of Macao, and the film is based to a very
large degree on a real triad member who was recently arrested. There has
been constant triad warfare on Macao to the point where tourists were being
warned to stay away when I was there last year.
Not a great film - but worth watching if you
are a Simon Yam fan. Ada Choi unfortunately has only a small thankless
role as Yam's wife.
