The latest and least in a series of baton passes between Martin Scorsese (credited as an exec producer) and the Hong Kong film industry (represented by co-directors Andrew Lau and Andrew Loo), this crudely made thriller plays like a stilted Cantonese riff on organized-crime cliches, substituting blood and brutality for novelty or insight.
