Shu Qi is the only reason to see this filmBy a customer from Hertfordshire , 29 Mar 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]The film is subtitled and distracts from viewing. The film is a typical mob - gangster type. Poor story. Shu Qi is lush as she appears topless.
Ok if you speak Cantoneese and like Shu Qi.

Suprising Enjoyable WatchBy a customer from Birmingham , 06 Jul 2010this film suprised me, i only rented becuase im a simon yam fan, but actually found that the film was quite good, i got caught up in the whole world of nightlife and triads in Hong Kong, and was wanting to know what was going to happen to the characters in which i liked and the ones that i didint like. this may not be one for everyone as it has adult themes throughout and shows the darker side of hong kong. but if you like films about chinese gangs, then this is one for you
Loved it!!By a customer from Manchester , 14 Sep 2008OK five stars may be a bit generous but I really did love it!
Not a serious film but much better than expected. I'll be honest, the only reason I rented this film was because of Shu Qi. I was expecting a very poor film but with some nice looking ladies (like 'So Close' for example) however I found myself really entertained!! I can't really pinpoint what I liked about it so much, (apart from the obvious) I guess it was the characters I liked (with the exception of Pi). I watched it twice and plan to get a copy myself.
I must say that Shu Qi's body was even nicer than I was expecting.
If you require a clever or deep story this might not be for you but it doesn't matter what I say, you're gonna do what we all did and rent it just to see Shu Qi!
Good on ya lad!
Street Angels - Sexy and DangerousBy a customer from Birmingham, England , 18 Apr 2007I rented this dvd thinking it might have something to do with the Young and Dangerous series, after finding out that there are actually 6 Young and Dangerous films plus various spin-offs. This one was mentioned. There are hardly any referrals to Y&D - the only character mentioned was Kwan who was killed off in the first movie, you have to bear in mind this one was made around the time of the 2nd and 3rd movies. I would say, the format was more or less the same as Young and Dangerous. Overall I was a bit disappointed, on the lack of individuality - they used the same theme music and the same ending as Y&D. Perhaps I am a bit biased, I really enjoyed Y & D so much that I bought the whole series with 6 spin offs that made sense.
Street AngelsBy a customer from Tonbridge, Kent , 23 Jan 2007Street Angels is relatively standard issue stuff. A gangster film with some Cat 3 elements (boobs, essentially) occasionally thrown in for good measure. It's entertaining almost in spite of itself.
Simon Yam is a capable actor (see Bullet in the Head, SPL or Election) but here he doesn't so much chew the scenery as chow it all down with lashings of ham before asking for seconds. His whole performance is turned up to 11 and while it's not actually any good it's certainly fun to watch. The same can't really be said for most of the other performers. Dao seems rather bored and the effect translates to the audience and most of the women are beauties first, actresses... oh about fifth.
This is certainly true of Yau but, aside from being very beautiful, there's definitely something about her. To misappropriate a Dorothy Parker quote she runs the gamut of emotion from a to b but she does have presence, some screen charisma which means that even though she's not great she certainly holds the attention. Shu Qi fans will want to see this not nly because it features one of her first major film roles but also because she's got a really rather good (and utterly gratuitous) nude scene.
Street Angels is rubbish but it's entertaining enough rubbish to be recommendable if this is your kind of movie.
The one where Shu Qi gets naked. Again.By adiw from Leicestershire , 19 May 2005And here we have it, one of Shu Qi's earliest roles. sadly that's about all i can recommend about this rather average offering from The East.
Produced by Andrew Lau, another big name in Hong Kong, the whole production seems to be of the been there, done that, did it better variety.
It does have some good moments but they are few and far between. However, if you're in it for the flesh then you'll be glad to know that Shu Qi is once again on hand to shed all of her clothing in a scene which i find incredibly hard to watch. After a point. Sniff.
Quite why the girl decided to cover up and achieve acclaim with the actual ability to act is far beyond me.
