Viewing Notes

I bumped this in my queue after it was referenced a few times times in Johnnie To’s Needing You… so I wanted to see how it related (not surprisingly To was a producer on this film). Also that that it was funny they referenced this film since Andy Lau stars in both. Yet here he is a skilled on a bike and in Needing You… he is not.

This movie is so 1990 HK action crime romance. And I love it for that. Andy Lau’s hair. Andy Lau’s jean jacket. Andy Lau’s high top white Reeboks. The romance is so misguided but so fairytale like. Sometimes it’s corny but it’s the core of the film between the gang violence. Easy to see why this was popular with audiences at the time.
