Supercool mobster Mark (Chow Yun Fat) is a man of honor in a world of crime. His partner Ho (Ti Lung) is having second thoughts because kid brother Kit (Leslie Cheung) is an ambitious cop. Kit remains blissfully ignorant until Ho is doublecrossed, their father is murdered and Ho is imprisoned.
Mark swears to avenge his friend, but his right le is shattered in the ensuing shoot-out, a legendary scene of sensationally choreographed gunplay. When Ho leaves the prison he finds the crippled Mark reduced to scrubbing dirt off the gang bossī stretch limo. Both are determined to go straight, but neither Kit nor the crimelords are done with them yet. Finally, Mark Ho and Kit must face their destiny in a blazing crossfire of conflicting loyalties and hot lead. Who will survive?
John Woo creates a finely tuned balance of strong characterization and ballistic action, while Chow is flawless in the role which launched him into superstardom.
