Violent and bloody at regular, brief intervals, this actioner from Hong Kong (known as "Xianggang" in Mandarin, or "Fragrant Harbor") features a gang from mainland China who sneak over to the thriving city to rob a jewelry store and then find themselves caught in a local Triad war. Everything goes wrong from the beginning. One of the gang members does not make it over the border; he ends up as dog food for the canine patrol instead. Next, the would-be thieves find that the jewelry store is locked up tight -- closed because of a robbery. They decide to hang out and do the usual round of prostitutes and clubs but do not count on becoming a part of a local conflict. Blood and bullets splatter the streets and the plot before the antiheroes remember they really should get that jewelry store after all.
