Storyline

In early 1997, mobsters Kwai Ching-hung, Yip Kwok-foon and Cheuk Tze-keung, whom have never met one another, are all in Hong Kong. Thereafter, rumour has it that Hong Kong's three most notorious mobsters, known in the underworld as the "Three Kings of Thieves", are plotting together to score a final hit before the transfer of sovereignty of Hong Kong. However, none are initially aware of the rumour. Yip is living as a fugitive after a gunfight with the Royal Hong Kong Police. He now makes his fortunes by smuggling counterfeit electronics. Powerful and prestigious in the past, Yip must now grovel to high Chinese officials. Although successful in his business, he becomes depressed. When the rumour comes to him, he feels the urge to give up everything and pick up his gun once again to join forces with the others. Kwai is very cautious and uses several pseudonyms to hide his identity. Although the scale of his crimes is nowhere as large as Yip's and Cheuk's, but he has managed to commit ...

Are you sure
18 July 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You've actually watched this film before putting up a hollow review that got nothing to do with this film itself but generally accuse Chinese movies released online for your piracy? Because if those movies were released on the big screen in the cinema in the US region, they'd definitely have English subtitles ready for the viewers who paid for the viewing. So it's obviously that you are just a freebie who kept downloading from those torrent websites, sometimes even before those movies have not been officially released yet to the theaters. It seems that you've downloaded this film without knowing it's still too early to have some understandable English subtitles available for freebies, yet you just attacked in the general direction to complain films from China, Korea, south Asian countries, or India simply because they didn't provide you with English subtitles and, just for this reason, you gave a low rating for this film for lacking of English subtitles. Give me a break, will you? Beggars can't be choosers, you don't have to download movies from foreign countries without English subtitles for free then complain about it. You can always buy a ticket to enjoy foreign movies with subtitles on the big screen or streamline from Amazon.com ready for you to understand and appreciate.

You're not rating this film with justifiable Stars as the first viewer's review because you didn't really view it, nor you have the right or the privilege to complain for a free chow. I don't view this film yet, so I'd not give any star to rate this film either; Cantonese or Mandarin, whatever.

UPDATE:

One of the VERY BEST CRIME FILMS ever coming out of H.K./China. The screenplay is very well thought through, a very matured one that rarely seen in recent years. The scenario and the plot are both top-drawer stuff. We've got three directors seamlessly directed from different angles and well synchronized. Three of the major leading crime bosses are also a perfect casting job. Richie Jen did a break-through performance. I used to consider this guy is a very bad actor, but not in this film, he's aged and totally grasped the role as a real deal. Congrats, Richie, you've finally arrived to become a better actor! Jordan Chan also did a fair job as the crazy, arrogant and out-of-control crime boss, a bit exaggerated in acting but quite matched being such a role. Ka Tung Lam played the hidden and mysterious chameleon, heartless but at the same time still got a tender corner in his heart to his old buddy. These three big criminals tried to meet up and do a crime of the century. They never met before only by their notorious names. There's a scene at the ending, they actually met face to face in a restaurant before. That scene is just such a nice high point of the whole movie, it also shows the crafty screenplay, the subtle and smart directing technique. All the supporting actors are also nice casting jobs. A very interesting story about how these three big criminals ended facing the music.

A great film hard-coded with Chinese subtitles. Highly recommended if this film could be released in the U.S., of course, English subtitles should become available then.
