  • HKFanatic's rating of the film City War

    Probably my least favorite Chow Yun Fat 'heroic bloodshed' film, though it's not without its moments. Like many Hong Kong movies of the era, the tone is wildly uneven - switching gears from broad visual comedy to erotic romance and then ultimately descending into pitch-black tragedy. Director Chung Sun seems to struggle with the material, as the final shoot-out lacks the visual clarity of someone like John Woo.
