And so it begins...By adiw from Leicestershire , 02 Dec 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]Jordan Chan gives a stand out performance in the first part of this popular Hong Kong saga.
Not the best film in the franchise, there have been at least six, but Young and Dangerous introduces us to a great cast and some fine gangster action.
It's all been done before but the youngsters are more than just pretty faces.
Take a chance with this humble beginning and find yourself losing a good ten hours of your life with the rest of the saga.

action killed movieBy juradino (815 reviews) from London , 05 Apr 2012Interesting as well as exuberant and somewhat chaotic film about triads in Hong Kong based on comics of which you see glimpses of. Nothing like Friend or Bittersweet Life though. In style similar to Guide to Recognising Your Saints.
Utter drossBy Robbiedjude (95 reviews) from Plymouth , 21 Aug 2009I have no idea what anyone could find to recommend in this film. The dialogue is appalling, the acting rubbish, the fight sequences a joke and the entire cast have not a shred of charisma amongst them. Me and my friends and dedicated fans of movies and eaastern ones in particular but we could not find one thing we liked about this film. I generally have no time for the people who post reviews and say they haven't watched the entire film as I don't think its fair to review a film you haven't seen all the way through but for only the second time in a life full of below average movies I turned it off. A wasted film slot and I am ashamed to see my friends again as my I suggested we watch this. It sucked.
great action movieBy a customer from London , 25 Jun 2008great storyline and fantastic action scenes. this is the start of it all......
A Triad epic~certainly not glorifiedBy driftedangel (63 reviews) from Southport , 10 Feb 2007I love the Young & Dangerous series and some of the spin-offs such as Portland Street Blues which tells the story of the only female gang leader~Sister 13. Young & Danerous has unfairly been accused of glorifying life in the Triads~but if this means that losing your loved ones, best friends and constant scarring is considered to be glorifying Triad life by the critics then they have a really weird sense of morality. Take the film for what it is, a Hong Kong Classic,well written and executed and acted. The rise of Ho Nam begins here.
The saga begins....By drunkenmaster (479 reviews) from Merthyr Tydfil, , 03 Sep 2006Like "The Godfather" trilogy or "Goodfellas", this first film in the long running series has a tendency to glorify the gangster lifestyle more than show how amoral it really is.
Violent and well acted by most of the cast this tale shows how easy it is for undirected youth to become seduced by the Triad way.
Jordan Chan gives a solid central performance, but it is Francis Ng's over the top portrayal of power gone to the head that wins out for me. A fine start to this series of films.
