Does Wo live here?

You got the wrong house.

There's no such person.

My name is Tai. I'll just wait for him.

Does Wo live here?

There's no such person.

How can we settle this?

Wo should've never come back.

Now he has to die.

We grew up together.

We joined the gang together.

Spare his life.

It's not like I have a choice.

I wish I were you.

It's your move.

Oh crap!

Boss Fay ordered the hit.

Boss Fay, this is Sergeant Shan.

I bumped into your men.

What they do is not my business.

I was just passing by.

Their guns are pointed at me.

Don't cause me trouble.

My job is over in 3 days.

Yes, Boss Fay.

Thank you, Boss Fay.

Baby is hungry.

Let's sit down and talk.

There's no furniture.

Pardon me...

Coming through...

You're too fat!

Don't block the staircase!

You're so clumsy!

Sorry... sorry...

One more.

Are you all right?

How old is your son?

He's one month old today.


Only one month old? He's a big baby.

I have to kill you.

What's your last wish?

Nobody will touch Wo.

My family needs money to live.

You were gone for so long.

Why come back?

I like it this way.

We spent years on the road.

I wanted a home.

You could've found another place

to settle down.

I have to carry out Boss Fay's order.

Explain to Boss Fay.

How? Wo almost took his life.

Wo and I plotted the assassination.

He took the wrap for me.

I have to protect him.


How much time do you need?

I'll tell you tomorrow.

Be a good boy.

Listen to your mom.


Please spare our lives.

Fat, you'll take the first shift;

I'll take the second.

Cat, keep an eye on Fat.

Have you killed Wo?

Have you?

Not yet.

Should I find someone else to do it?

No. I'll take care of it.

This is the last time

I'll be calling you.

I'm sorry.

Welcome to Macau, Boss Fay.

Uncle Fortune, has Boss Keung

accepted our terms?

That punk won't cooperate with us.

Take care of him. Then we'll talk.

I got something big.

Are you interested?

What is it?


Real gold.


This tip is only for good friends.

Maybe you'll like the sound of it.

Maybe you won't.

But keep it a secret.

A ton of gold will be

transferred tomorrow.

The truck will pass by Buddha Mountain.

You hijack the gold.

I'll find you a buyer.

Who does the gold belong to?

Powerful government officials.

It's their corruption money.

Think it over.

I will take the job.

I'll take it.

But we can't wait until tomorrow.

Who knows if the gold is for real?

What other choices do we have?

How about Blackie?

Cripple Joe?

It'll cost you.

I'll pay any price.

He's Boss Keung.

most powerful gangster.

Your odds of escaping alive are slim.

This is it.

take the shot.



Be careful.
