Tiger of Wanchai/C,C+

Universe/1994/105/WS 1.85

     tragicfantasy.jpg (4171 bytes)Right smack dab in the middle of this Triad flick, a montage segment inserted that plays like a music video that might have been called "Triad's Rising Star." It even reminded me of some sections of Evita. Though well done, it saps the energy from "Tiger," and is indicative of a certain lack of direction which plagues the film.    

   Don't expect too much from this Hong Kong transfer. It's adequate in sharpness, though several scenes are less than optimal and colors are not tightly focused.
