Storyline

The police are staking out a Hong Kong flat, waiting to catch some major gun-dealers. While the suppliers are conducting their deal, they move in. Both buyers are killed in the gunfire, but not their young daughter. The suppliers escape, and as their ruthless boss covers his tracks, he goes after the girl, the only witness. They trace her to a safe house, but are killed in the ensuing gunfight. Written by Cynan Rees <cynanrees@hotmail.com>

Entertaining but unoriginal romance with some action
22 October 2001 | by expertenSee all my reviews

Good things: Chow Yun Fat. Well directed. Good pacing, never boring. Roy Cheung is always (not so) nice to see. The bad guys are brutal.

Bad things: It is a remake of Witness (but not so similar that you will be disturbed by the fact). Too lighthearted, too sentimental, especially for people like me who likes children in movies, but only if they die. Not enough violence. No, it is not better than Witness, only different. 7/10
