From Beijing With Love (1994)
4/10 - My least favourite Chiau movie so far

I love the scene at the start with Yu Rong-Guang taking on a bunch of terroristy types, a nice piece of OTT action. After there it's pretty much downhill all the way though. I really didn't like the film. I found it didn't really have much of a point or a heart, or a message to convey. I found the humour just wasn't funny, and the characters weren't well developed or likeable. I found the occasional moments of brutal violence were just brushed over totally... heartless. It didn't work for me nearly as well as any of Stephen Chiau's other films.
