Review
Three young Hong Kong hustlers move to Saigon to try and profit, smuggling penicillin and gold, from the war, but their friendship is tested to the limits through greed, betrayal and lust, amid the horrors of a war-torn Vietnam. Comparable to the 'Deer Hunter', this violent epic is the most ambitiously personal and political of John Woo's films, but still comes packed with guns, explosives and balletic action.
