YesAsia Editorial Description

Having teamed up in Wong Kar-wai's As Tears Go By 16 years ago, Andy Lau and Jacky Cheung co-star in Jiang hu, a Mafia movie produced by Eric Tsang.

The story revolves around a gang boss who longs to retire from the triads. But he conceives of triads as a place where retirement is no difference from death, and the birth of his son would merely imply a new threat to his life. A rumor that the gang boss is to be murdered within 12 hours is going around. Calm and discerning, the veteran gang boss simply waits and sees while his impulsive good brother vows to dig out the real culprit. Elsewhere, a young gangster who has been seeking his way to earn fame determines to be the killer with the assistance of his buddy. But when everyone gets set to act, things come up out of anticipation ...

The DVD version is subtitled in English and Chinese, and comes with a bonus disc of special features including the making of documentary, interview with main cast, music video, never-before-shown footage, photo gallery, N.G. shots, the behind story of the posters and more.

    "Jiang Hu"- A 2004 Crossover mixing Chivalry and Gangsters

    "Jiang Hu" is the shining star of the Hong Kong movie industry in 2004 with its A-listed cast. After "As Tears Go By" and "A Moment of Romance", Andy Lau teams up in the gangster world again with Jacky Cheung and Jacklyn Wu. "Jiang Hu" introduces a brand new production crew including independent movie director Wong Ching-po and Creative Media undergraduate To Chi-long.

    The first impression "Jiang Hu" brings to the reviewer is whether it is simply another follower of "Jiang Hu-The Triad Zone" (2000). While the Lam Chiu-yan production turned a new page of triad movies by making a fool out of the typical gangsters, "Jiang Hu" has no intention to follow in Lam's footsteps but rather retraces the traditional mafia world. It is a triad movie that highlights and glorifies the value of brotherhood and comradeship in the underworld.

    In the old made-in-Hong-Kong combat movies Chinese chivalry and knighthood was nobly honored just as the fictions written by Jin Yong and Gu Long can look back on a long history with similar themes. In these stories the world is anarchical, factions are constantly fighting and the Chinese knights tend to have a fuzzy foe-or-friend relationship. This kind of movie once enjoyed a huge overseas market, which unfortunately led to rash productions and even to a dead-end situation in its latter era. Gangster movies, which have spread their influence since the 1980's, went on to input new concepts in the old chivalry framework. While sword fighting among knights was replaced by gunfire exchanges among gangsters, fatalism, brotherhood and other themes popular in the traditional chivalry movies can still be located in the revamped gangster films. Examples include John Wu's "A Better Tomorrow" and "Hard-Boiled", the "Young and Dangerous" series, Johnny To Kei-fung's "Milkyway Image" movies featuring contests of wits in the underworld and the award-winning movie "Internal Affairs".

    While "Jiang Hu-The Triad Zone" gives a sarcastic reflection on the triad world, "Jiang Hu" re-establishes the deep-rooted law and order common in the old chivalry and knighthood movies. While Turbo's (Edison Chan) loyalty to his best buddy is contrasted with Wing's (Shawn Yue) determination to steal the throne, Lefthander's (Jacky Cheung) ruthlessness is contrasted with Brother Jiu's calm wisdom. The scene where Lefthander and Brother Jiu are caught in a vendetta in a diner can also be considered as a tribute paid to the Hollywood production "The Godfather" and the idea of anarchism in the old Chinese chivalry movies. The role of women has not changed much either in "Jiang Hu". Emily and Yoyo the prostitute still share a similarity with other women in the traditional chivalry world bringing nothing but chaos to the androcentric domain.

    "Jiang Hu" and "Internal Affairs" almost feature the same actors with a few differences in so far that Tony Leung was replaced by Jacky Cheung and Anthony Wong by Miu Kiu-wai and Norman Tsui Siu-keung. "Jiang Hu", however, should not be treated as another series of "Internal Affairs" or a look-alike of "Jiang Hu-the Triad Zone". When "Jiang Hu" first hit the local market, what stole most of the limelight was not its underlying message but the scene where Turbo, played by Edison the teen idol, was punished to have sex with a dog. Other common criticisms include the too-fancy post-modern filming techniques and the confusing storylines. Putting all controversies aside, "Jiang Hu" can be seen as a modern chivalry movie featuring an underworld where the concept of black and white is not as clear-cut as that in the past anymore.

    It's good... Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    that's about it. I thought this film was going to be the typical slash and run type of triad movie. I was amazed that it didn't turn out that way. It had it's fair treatment on Lust, betrayal, and murders... but the movie emphasized more on Triad boss Hung(Andy Lau), Left hand(Jacky Cheung) and two hopefuls, Yik(Shawn Yue) and Turbo(Edison Chen), who plan on being top dogs as well. I'll won't spoil much but elaborate that the movie serves jelly filled material most of the time so once again this isn't your typical "you chop me so I'll chop you" type of movie. The ending I thought wasn't weak like most people said, but rather a pleasant one. The extras are great but I'm not that fluent in Chinese so English Subtitles would be greatly appreciated next time. The music video was disappointing because it didn't have Lin Yuan's theme song or Chapman To's "Brothers" song, which both are featured at the end of the movie or on "Jiang Hu's" official website. Overall, decent flick with an assortment of "Infernal Affairs" actors(another reason that makes you want to watch this film). For starters, I say rent first at your nearest Chinese tape shop.

    Nice... Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    It's a pretty good movie to watch on DVD...
    Not too many actions... I wish that they can have more hack and slash action in a cool music background.

    I love some of their soundtrack... hope they can have the soundtrack soon for it...

    So so Customer Review Rated Bad 5 - 5 out of 10
    The movie is somewhat predictable, and the pace is slow. Overall, not a bad movie, but it could have been much better. Good acting saves a redundant storyline.

    Could have been better Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
    This is a triad movie about friendship and blood brothers. The story parallels that of two best friends trying to become famous in the triad world by eliminating a big boss, while a certain big boss attempts to find out who's trying to kill him. If you liked "Infernal Affair", you may like this movie after all. While many may compare this to "Infernal Affairs" with regards to the young and old characters of the movies, the plot to "Infernal Affair" is much better with more suspense. Nevertheless, it's nice to see Jacky Cheung on the screen again.
