I rented this dvd thinking it might have something to do with the Young and Dangerous series, after finding out that there are actually 6 Young and Dangerous films plus various spin-offs. This one was mentioned. There are hardly any referrals to Y&D - the only character mentioned was Kwan who was killed off in the first movie, you have to bear in mind this one was made around the time of the 2nd and 3rd movies. I would say, the format was more or less the same as Young and Dangerous. Overall I was a bit disappointed, on the lack of individuality - they used the same theme music and the same ending as Y&D. Perhaps I am a bit biased, I really enjoyed Y & D so much that I bought the whole series with 6 spin offs that made sense.
I think this was one of Simon Yam's worse film, plus I find Shu Qi really annoying
