Set in the 1980s, the film follows the story of a Hong Kong business firm that goes from being public to bankrupt within a few years. The Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) got involved and spent over 15 years investigating the company and its ties with international corporations.

Not a gold mine but still find bit of gold

Seeing the legendary Tong Leung and Andy Lau - as well as other big names in HK film, you may think this will be HK's next big movie. However, this is no Infernal Affairs. On the whole, this is an average movie executed relatively well - considering the HK film industry in the past decade. The biggest negative was the script, which was held up by a stella cast (mostly Tony), stunning visuals and a good soundtrack. It's worth a watch if you are a Tony fan or a HK cinema fan.

Characters/Acting:
As expected, Tony Leung has a stella performance and holds up the entire film with his charismatic acting. Tony played an amazing "crafty villan". Disappointingly, Andy's character is incredibly dull with very little interesting points despite marketed as Tony's "rival". The supporting characters are a lot more interesting than Andy's who accomplishes very little in the movie and did not even have 1/3 of the screen time. A complete waste of Andy's skills if you ask me.

Plot/Script:
The story is inspired by real events and quite interesting enough. The flashback focusing on Tony was fun to watch especially with Ton'y charisma. There are a few points in the script that were poorly written such as a few points that were mentioned and never addressed, There are some interesting twists in the movie as well as things that needed more explanation.

Execution:
The visuals are pretty good, there are quite a few visual metaphors and the cinematography is not bad. Visually, the movie looks great. The soundtrack is also quite memorable and helps elevate the movie.
