The first film role of the late Brandon Lee, this Hong Kong thriller is the story of Brandon (Lee), a hard-working young man who has an unfortunate friendship with Michael (Michael Wong), a gangster who has his eye on Brandon's girlfriend May (Regina Kent). Michael frames Brandon for the murder of one of his rivals, and Brandon is imprisoned. Many years later, Brandon's reunion with May and their son is cut short when Michael kidnaps the mother and child. Brandon must rescue his family and exact revenge on Michael. Although Lee had yet to reach the level of acting demonstrated in The Crow and Rapid Fire, this 1986 film provides a better showcase for his martial arts abilities than his later American films; each film would progressively de-emphasize his skills. ~ Jonathan E.

Brandon Lee was amazing in this movie! It's such a tragedy that he didn't live long enough to put out more great films today. The movie has it all: action, good storyline, solid acting, the works. You cannot go wrong with this one ;-)
Talk about choosing the wrong friends. One would expect more martial arts rather than modern ballistics, but I suppose around that era, guns were predominant for use in criminal and anti-criminal operations. Not too much drama which would have been a distraction amid all the action scenes.
