PS: For those who are not aware, Jaycee Chan is Jackie Chan's son. Yup, he is that old now ... anyway, this is NOT his first film, but one of the better ones that he has been cast in ...


Synopsis
The stories of three policemen converged as they unite to bring the Ronin Gang down ...

My thoughts

-- It has been quite some time when HK action-packed film does not live up to its hype. They are usually too strong on their action at the expense of story/characterization. Although I cannot claim that this film is awesome in terms of story/characterization, it at least has a decent story/characterization. So, it does not fail in one aspect (its story), and it does well in the other (i.e., its action). So, I enjoyed the film.

-- You may wonder why we are "picky" on the story/characterization ... well, there are simply some lines that feel too philosophical, i.e., about human, about heroes, or about the good ... But hey, who cares ... the selling point is still its well choreographed action ... ha ha ha

Conclusion
Well, if you are an adrenalin-rushed teenage, or you kind of miss the good old days of HK action (with some story and characterization), here you go ... it is back.
