Action/Adventure, Drama
The hero of this Hong Kong actioner is introduced in the middle of a machete fight that lands him behind bars for five years. When he's released, his wife has given birth to a son he's never met and rival gangs try to horn in on his turf. You likely know the rest, but there are enough odd wrinkles to lift this above the norm: a prostitute interrupts coitus to read her john's fortune; a gangster's open homosexuality is accepted instead of played for laughs; and an underworld cabal gives direct democracy a try. There's also an overlord who's equal parts Don Corleone and Dr. Evil. Herman Yau directed. In Cantonese with subtitles.
