Screenplay and direction by John Woo gives high expectation for this movie. This is watchable for the action. But, is not John Woo's best work. It's middle range. The dialogue is second to the action scenes which take up 80 percent of the drama if not more!

Story: Made simply to compliment the shootouts! The dialogue was more like transitions to the next fight scene. The ending was cliche and cringey almost comedic.

Cast: Casting is typical for Japanese films with experienced actors. Ha Ji Won and Stephy Qi add the beauty factor. All the cast performed well.

Music: The music was appropriate for an action movie. Nothing memorable.

Rewatch value: Average. Not something I want to see again.

The  movie Starts in Osaka, where Chinese lawyer Du Qiu arrives at a small  pub and talks to a barmaid Rain about the beauty of the old movies. A moment of beauty and nostalgic self-reflection abruptly interrupted by the second waitress Dawn, who sends you away from Qiu. Seconds  later, the two reveal themselves as killers, calmly and in the classic  style of John Woo - slow and half-hung motion in the air - the Yakuza in  the next room collapsing without time. Here we are only in  the fifth minute of the film, but it can already be said that Woo here  is not only content, but above all in his film, aesthetics offers a  pastiche of his works in the 80s and 90s. He works with vignettes, many  crossfades and brings of digital material an interesting beauty that,  along with the light, truly resembles the neon-esque films of the  decades.
