Great Sequel (but not many people know this!),
This review is from: Exiled [DVD] (DVD)
Like many of the other reviews, I love this film for its no-nonsense stylish action and great 'Western' style bonding from the Wild Bunch gang. What many do not know is that this is a sequel from a fantastic but rare early Johnnie To feature called 'The Mission'. This explains why the gang need to avoid the clutches of the mad and vengeful Simon Yam.
Fortunately, Johnnie To has built this movie so it can be watched as a standalone feature, but if you are getting into your modern Hong Kong action cinema, I would strongly recommend importing The Mission as well, as they are an excellent accompaniment!
Great movie, not an all-time classic, but a great movie.
