Watch Triad Wars - Alternative Versions.
There's no guarantee in life that another day means another dollar, but
you can pretty much count on a new Simon Yam movie coming along. And
here he is again in a triad story, but don't let the fact bring you
down or put you off: this is actually a cool movie, marrying as it does
serious underworld scheming with fantasy violence. It's kind of like
the Infernal Affairs trilogy condensed and on crack.
Fatal Move is a Category III for violence only and it's indeed
relatively bloody, even if much of the gore is cheap CGI. This is no
Hostel, but nonetheless the body count is impressive and the range of
physical outrages quite extensive, including one torture scene where
Simon not only says it's pain time, but also does most of the
inflicting in person.
The result of all this bears some similarity to last summer's Invisible
Target, although Fatal Move isn't as compelling or refreshing, nor are
its characters quite as appealing. It also has crooks masquerading as
cops, a raid on a police station and a SWAT/SDU team being made fools
of, and does possess considerable talent in addition to Yam, we get
Sammo Hung and Wu Jing, both very capable performers, albeit not in
their strongest outings here. This is especially true for Wu Jing,
whose looney-aggressive act appears lifted directly from SPL, only not
as sincere. Sammo gets very little time to show off his moves, yet does
well as clan leader Lin Ho Lung, a veteran criminal who for once
bothers with differentiating between "triad" and "mafia", a point
rarely noted on the big screen.
The story begins with Boss Lin celebrating the birth of his first son,
and all's well his deputies Ah Tung (Simon Yam) and Tin Hung (Wu
Jing) seem to have things under control, while his female right hand
person Soso (Tien Niu) maintains the books balanced and the money
This being a triad actioner, calm isn't the primary directive, and
quickly things go sour as internal conniving and treachery become the
order of the day on top of pressure from ever-present cops, led by
Danny Lee as Inspector Liu, and with Lam Suet throwing in a cameo for
some tragic-comic relief.
Soon the choppings, sword slashings, bludgeoning and outright gunning
down of cronies by the van load commence, accompanied by a rather
convoluted string of double-dealing and treachery that affects all
involved parties. Although this means the characters aren't totally
flat and do have motivations, this facet of the story is left somewhat
under-developed and thus results in mild confusion. As a consequence,
the ending, which has a couple of supposed stunner-twists, fails to
stuff the bucket, as they say, instead coming across as a bit of a red
herring in fancy evening wear. This applies to many parts of Fatal Move
even at two hours it still feels cut in many instances, like they had
to remove scenes at the last minute or something.
Overall, Director Law (who did Fatal Contact before, also with Wu Jing)
supervised a competent project here. This is a worthy addition to an
already heavily populated herd of jiang hu flicks, and Fatal Move is
all-told a memorable and visceral release that's unlikely to go down as
a classic despite being a solid viewing with a healthy dose of both
Election-like gangland politics and comic book hyperbole. We'd say go
for it, it's one move you'll live to not regret.
