This violent gangster film from veteran Hong Kong filmmaker Che-Kirk Wong is one of the earliest to deal with the themes and stylistic techniques later popularized in films such as A Better Tomorrow. Sai (Michael Chan) is a triad hoodlum who works security at his employer's dance club overseeing the safety of the female staff. Sai's boss is murdered with an outboard motor in a particularly gruesome scene, and two different factions fight for control of the club as Sai and his co-workers struggle to keep them out. Grim and downbeat, the film contains some notable fight scenes, particularly one in which Sai fights a dozen would-be killers in a cavernous parking garage.Norman Tsui co-stars with Kent Cheng and Phillip Ko.
