Storyline

In the 1970s, Li Ah Chai was a powerful Hong Kong crime boss whose lieutenants were two orphaned brothers, Tang Kat Yung and Lam Ting Kwok. When he names Kwok as his heir, the cruel and sadistic Yung becomes jealous. The upshot: during the 1980s, Kwok retires to Malacca to raise a family, Yung builds his power, and Chai gradually loses his circle, one at a time, to bribery and murder. All Chai wants is to live in peace with his wife and son, but Yung's desire for revenge overcomes reason. Chai tries to retreat to Malacca; Yung follows him there with tragic results. Afterwards, Chai calls his old nemesis in the Hong Kong police department, Supt. Chang, to alert him that he's going to try one final assault on Yung's fortress. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Great gangster concept but a bit too dated for today. 5/10
9 May 2016 | by leonblackwoodSee all my reviews

Review: The first thing that I noticed with this movie, is how dated it looked, and the soundtrack was pretty awful. I also didn't like the narrating right at the beginning of the film because I found it a cheap way to get the movie going. Apart from that, I enjoyed the whole gangster element of the film and the brutal baddie Yung (Alex Man), who basically went on a killing spree to get to the top, was great. Chow Yun-Fat's character, Lee Ah-chai, was always great and when he teamed up with Kwok (Andy Lau), near the end, they really worked well together. I must admit, the action scenes were way over the top and the amount of times that people were getting shot, before they died, was ridiculous but it's still a watchable, old school gangster movie which does have its good points. I just wished that I saw the first movie, Richard & Famous, before I watched this one! Watchable!

Round-Up: This movie was directed by Taylor Wong, who has made 22 movies for the Oriental market but his Rich and Famous franchise has to be his best movies to date. He definitely got the most out of the actors/actresses but the whole dated look of the movie, let it down for audiences who watch it today. 

Budget: N/A Worldwide Gross: HK $19million

I recommend this movie to people who are into their action/crime/dramas starring Chow Yun-Fat, Andy Lau, Carina Lau, Danny Lee, Alex Man and Siu-Fung Wong. 5/10
