Johnnie To's stylistic homage to Akira Kurosawa
In this visually arresting action drama from acclaimed director Johnnie To (SPARROW, MAD DETECTIVE), legendary Judo fighter Szeto Bo (Louis Koo; FLASHPOINT, WHITE STORM) unexpectedly gave up the sport and now lives the life of an alcoholic gambler who runs a pub.
However, cocky Judo newcomer Tony (Aaron Kwok) wants to challenge him, while old foe Kong (Tony Leung Ka Fai, ELECTION) demands Szeto finishes the match that never took place.
Soon Szeto’s pub becomes the ultimate arena where the greatest Judo fighters challenge one another.
