The Skinny: Average crime thriller is just that: average.
by Kozo:
     Wannabe Milky Way thriller that’s watchable but only if bored. Michael Wong leads a group of four thieves who abide by the “Hung Kwai” or Blood Rules. As can be expected, a deal goes bad and people start dying when the rules are broken. Then, our heroes must attempt vengeance on those that would break the rules. Yep, it sounds like a Milky Way movie, but the whole thing is submarined by an idiotic love subplot involving practically the whole cast. That's right: the whole cast, including Lam Suet, who carries a torch for Suki Kwan, who wants Michael Wong, but he has a wife (Pauline Yam). If that weren't enough, former Mei-Ah pitchman Stephen Au Kam-Tong shows up and provides possibly the most annoying performance of the year. You should watch The Mission for the thirty-fifth time before checking out The Blood Rules. There are some gripping violent moments, but nothing else to keep us interested. (Kozo 2000)
