Decent action/revenge movie helmed by Johnnie To.
There are some quirky ideas and gunfights but the film slows to a crawl at times with some unneeded scenes.
Johny Haliday never was an actor but he has presence. His part was originally going to Alan Delon (another non-actor with presence).

7/10


Maybe, Noodles_Leone can put his input.

I just looked this up on IMDb and . . . uh . . . FC, you didn't think it was worth mentioning that this is supposed to be an homage to Le Samourai? (The Halliday character is named "Costello" etc.)

IMDB does say that but this has as much a relation with Le Samourai than Star Wars has with Hidden Fortress.
Haliday wears a long black coat and that is about it.
