About the Movie
For the first time since The Mission in 1999, Anthony Wong (Infernal Affairs) and Francis Ng (Infernal Affairs 2) once again team up with Johnnie To and his regulars Roy Cheung (Infernal Affairs 2), Lam Suet (PTU), and Simon Yam (Election) in another action-packed ensemble piece Exiled. Joining this virile cast are Richie Jen and Nick Cheung, both of whom worked previously with Johnnie To in Breaking News, as well as new collaborator Josie Ho (Butterfly). The time is 1998. The setting is Macau. Every living soul jumps at every chance to make quick money before the Portuguese colony ushers in a new era under the Chinese rule. For the jaded hit men, they wonder where this journey will end. Against this background of fin-de-siècle malaise come two hit men from Hong Kong sent to take out a renegade member trying to turn over a new leaf with his wife and newborn baby. They soon find themselves in the throes of a dilemma when two of their former associates also show up, intent on thwarting them at every cost.
Triads Done Elegant.
Johnnie To goes lite and compiles some great gun action, macho manliness, and honor among thieves. With To's cast of regulars -- Anthony Wong, Simon Yam, Suet Lam, Roy Cheung, and a very awesome Francis Ng -- he creates a midway film between his fun and serious works. It's a very stylistic take on the Triads, not really highlighting the intricacies of its complex traditions but definitely playing up the brotherhood angle. The centerpiece of the film is a darkly humorous brawl in which the good guys and bad guys unknowingly meet up the same underground doctor. The finale is also quite amazing: a shoot-out that lasts as long as it takes to throw a can in the air. Also check out Johnnie To's "Election" and its tense sequel.
BE CAREFUL - MOVIE IS DUBBED IN ENGLISH!
Great movie but I was fooled into thinking it will be in the original language with English subtitles. The dubbed English sounds corney...
Don't buy, dubbed version
Great movie, but iTunes fails to tell you it's the dubbed english version not the original. Save your money.
