Synopsis by Jonathan Crow

Herman Yau Lai-to -- who a year later would gain notoriety for his over-the-top brain-munching splatter flick The Untold Story -- spins this quickie ultra-violent crime drama. Dee (Jackie Cheung) is a cop with the elite Special Duty Unit who, while on an assignment to apprehend a band of murderous thieves, rescues a beautiful lass named Heidi (Sammi Cheng), the daughter of renowned gangland kingpin Hung Kwan (Paul Chun Pui). Meanwhile, Dee struggles to come to terms with his embittered, dissolute father who, 20 years previous, killed his brother. When Dee and Heidi fall for one another, both fathers are less than pleased -- partially because the two are life-long enemies. When Heidi refuses to listen to her father's commands to end the relationship, Hung Kwan puts a hit out on Dee. Our hero responds by taking weapon in hand and meting out his own brand of decidedly violent justice.
