Wall, The
Hong Kong 2002
Directed by Marco Mak.


Two young gangbanger buddies trying to prove themselves kill their target, but only one gets caught. More than a decade later, Jordan Chan gets out of prison and looks to start a new life, while his old friend, played by Patrick Tam, has become a big triad boss. Things get decidedly silly when Tam, to show how much he missed his friend, shows him a telescope he used to watch the prison grounds every day. When an undercover cop is killed by the gang, the police chief (Simon Loui, bringing some nice energy to an otherwise typical role) will stop at nothing to bring Tam down. Jordan Chan is pretty flat and uninspired, and the film never quite takes off.

Rating: Marginally Recommended (Marginally Recommended)
