What? Oh, did I come across as demeaning somehow? Never my intention, I was simply commenting on the two Hong Kong flicks I recalled seeing and their possible connections to Sleeping Dogs and video games in general.

Guess I'll have to do my best sheepish old Chinaman impression now. "Apologies, but your language, this Engrish... how do you say it... difficult."

Give it a shot, especially if it's up for a budget price. I don't think it was anything to leave a lasting impression, but fun enough romp for a single playthrough. It's probably best treated as a straight-to-dvd sequel to Hard Boiled, definitely made easier by the fact that Chow Yun-Fat "reprises" his role as Tequila, in both likeness and voice.

It's not limited to any single year though, so I guess an optimist could view it as the ultimate solution in replay value.
