Needed more time to develop plot, characters...

This was a great little film, full of family love and the relationship between a father who gets custody of his lost daughter after her mother dies His wife took her daughter to live with the her family in the daughter's early years. The mother left Taipei and took her to the island of Kinmen...

A beautiful relationship develops between Chen Shinwoo (Shaowu)/Ally Chiu and her estranged father, Keigo (Jack Kao) but leave it to a corrupt police officer to acuse problems with Keigo's former gang members...

The cinematography and music are not bad in this movie and all the cast, main and support, make you feel as if you are dealing with a real gangster setting; however, the movie turns very voilent near the end and I woujd not recomment it to anyone under 18 years of age.

You have to watch the last 16 minutes a few times to catch everything that happened!

My main complaint is that the movie should have been longer to better develop the characters and not rush through the plot the way they did.

While the actors and story were really good, the music and rushing of the plot made is 'so-so'; hence a lower rating from me!

I would have really liked for it to have been more developed and also not have the cop indiscriminately kill everyone left after the shootout in the bar!
