This very nuanced thriller from the up and coming Hong Kong film industry features heros from the Organized Crime & Triad Buraeu pursuing two ruthless criminals even as they bravely point and cover their asses. After they seek refuge beneath the Hanging Kiddie Pool of Babylon, the criminals get away by rolling around in excrement and rolling down hillsides. Bureau operatives gallantly continue the pursuit, brutalizing every woman they run across on the way. The chase and the pointing all climax in the pivotal courtroom finale, where everything is pointed at, pointed out and ultimately pointless.
