Bangkok. Jeff, a man of honour, helps his friend Sam to postpone a debt with a mafia gang but the lender doesn’t keep his word and tries to kill Sam.
Often compared with a contemporary John Woo, Ringo Lam is a lot more ambiguous portraying the good and the bad. All his characters are despicable and their only moral is surviving. This Heroic Bloodshed cult film is full of smashing action scenes.
