Ringo Lam RAS di Hong Kong, 1987

Bob's rating of the film City on Fire

Neon lights, smooth jazz and lounge bars are one of the seductive backgrounds of the story that is occasionally too messy to be fully enjoyed. Too much running and chasing mashed together with romantic love story - because of that, the focus on heist and its antagonists is lost. The great ending is just a reminder of everything that has not been explored as it should have been.
