OK, so it's hokey with no proper storyline and no character development or believable interaction between those on screen, but boy does it work! You can keep your over long pretentious tales of what real gentlemen the mafia, the triads or whatever are. I'm not interested that whilst they're busting my old lady they're being good to theirs. Goodies versus baddies or even baddies versus baddies means action and if we are to have action let's have it like this, fast furious, non-stop and stylish. It doesn't have to look as good as here but it helps. This film is a wondrous ride and do we pause for a romantic interlude? Do the fantastic pair, Chow Yun-Fat and Mira Sorvino even touch each other? I don't think there was time for that, time only to pick up two or two dozen guns and fire them all at once, all the time. Wow this is silly comic book stuff, but real fun.
