No crime series would be complete without a gangster film from master Hong Kong action-purveyor Johnnie To (DRUG WAR, ELECTION, MAD DETECTIVE). When two hit men (Anthony Wong and Lam Suet) arrive to assassinate Wo (Nick Cheung), a former member of their gang, they are surprised to find him living in lawful domestic bliss with a wife and new baby. As another pair of killers (Francis Ng and Roy Cheung) arrive to protect Wo, violence quickly turns to nostalgia as the five gangsters, who grew up together, decide to take a break, share a meal, reminisce about their notorious past and re-join forces for one final job. DIR/PROD Johnnie To; SCR Szeto Kam-Yuen, Yip Tin-shing. Hong Kong, 2006, color, 110 min. In Cantonese with English subtitles. RATED R
