The Skinny: Average "ex-triad gets out of jail" flick with Stephen Chow in a supporting role.
by Kozo:
     A lot of “befores” are featured in this movie. It features Max Mok before he was washed up. Stephen Chow before he was a superstar. Ellen Chan before she went Category 3 and faded into obscurity. Ng Man-Tat before he became Stephen Chow’s number one comedy sidekick. All that can’t change the fact that this average triad drama is strictly that: average. 
     Dragon (Mok), is a triad boy out of jail. He woos and wins club girl Gigi (Ellen), but will he change for the better? What do you think? What makes this movie average is the lack of emotion felt. It’s here where you blame the actors. Max Mok can’t carry his character - he just makes little sense. And Ellen Chan is plastic as Gigi. And the romance is hackneyed and boring. I was starting to long for the poetry of First Love Unlimited. Stephen Chow steals every scene he’s in, and he doesn’t even do that much. Even when his job was loose cannon wacky sidekick, Chow had the ability to demonstrate a believable emotional range.
(Kozo 1997)
