Plot: In the violent world of Hong Kong's Triad societies, one false move can be fatal. A series of unexpected misfortunes challenge the very existence of gang leader Lung and his mob, eventually leading to a bloody gangster war. Battle after battle Lung and his gang are moving closer to destruction. A drug deal turns bad, a kidnap turns into murder, a secret mission turns into a savage massacre of the police. Who is the mastermind behind these evil plots, and will Lung be able to defy fate and survive or will the once powerful gang face extinction? To fight with destiny can sometimes be deadly.
«However, despite its title, Fatal Move is severely lacking in compelling action scenes. You have the tired car chases, and it seems that there was little effort in trying to milk what Wu Jing and Sammo Hung could do. They're martial arts exponents, but get to handle guns most of the time, and this does not exploit the skills they are trained with, which you can probably employ anyone to take over their place.»
«Overall, Director Law (who did Fatal Contact before, also with Wu Jing) supervised a competent project here. This is a worthy addition to an already heavily populated herd of jiang hu flicks, and Fatal Move is all-told a memorable and visceral release that's unlikely to go down as a classic despite being a solid viewing with a healthy dose of both Election-like gangland politics and comic book hyperbole. We'd say go for it, it's one move you'll live to not regret. »
«Fatal Move looks like a return to good ol' triad angst and action, but Law handles things with a conspicuous gravity, as if he's making some sort of serious gangster epic instead of a gritty triad potboiler.»
