Two rival gangs are waiting on the outcome of a negotiation between the gang leaders. In the afternoon and evening leading up to the meeting tensions are running high, anticipating a night of violence on the streets of Hong Kong. We are introduced to Dagger (Francis Ng) a smart but cowardly triad, who understands the fallacies of the triad lifestyle and who just wants to play mahjong and avoid the whole situation. Dinosaur (Roy Cheung) is the complete opposite, he lives for the thrill of the fight, longing for the action to arrive, to give himself and his friends the chance to prove themselves in honourable battle. Cheung Tat Ming is an anti-triad cop with more than work on his mind, his relationship with his pregnant wife is faltering, and as a result he's under great pressure from his boss. Can the situation be averted or will the tension prove too much?
Once again Cha Chuen Yee delivers a clever, thoughtful and highly amusing film that also carries emotional weight thanks to it's well developed characters. Just as much of an anti-triad movie as the first but approaching it's subject from a different angle, the two movies make for a great double bill, or rather they would if you could get hold of them, like the first movie, this one is unavailable in Hong Kong too. The two films deserve a much better fate than languishing in the obscurity they currently do.
