Movie Review by Movie Addict
June 2nd, 2007

The innocent must die!

If you like it loud, then this is the film for you. If you like blood, then you will love this film. If you want action, you won't find any more anywhere else.

John Woo is the master of hard hitting, loud, bloody action flicks.

You think the first 20 minutes of Saving Private Ryan was loud and bloody? It is nothing compared to the last 20 minutes of this film.

The bad guys come out of the wall like c*ckroaches, and Supercop (Yun-Fat Chow) is there to blow them away. Yes, he's the same Captain Sao Feng from Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End.

He is working with another superstar of Chinese film Tony Leung Chiu Wai (Hero, 2046, Infernal Affairs).

You will not believe the action at the end. The battle takes place in the most unlikely of places. The bad guy is so bad that one of his own men tries to kill him for crossing the line. I guarantee that no Mel Gibson, or even John McClain film can match this action.

Action not enough? There is even full frontal nudity - in the hospital nursery. :-)

Personally, I liked The Killer more, but good choice for a Woo action flick!
