Violent and intense uncharacteristic Sammo Hung film with some hard hitting action scenes. Another very good film from Ringo Lam that mixes elements from earlier films, and the whole blackmail photo subplot reminds me of The Big Heat(1988), which this film shares some things in common with. Sammo is terrific in the action scenes as usual, and shows he's a very good actor as well. Also memorable are the villain performances by two heroic bloodshed regulars. Imo, an underrated film.
