    Johnnie To's Exiled is an apparently improvised crime drama like only Hong Kong cinema can make them, which at times veers into the blackest of comedies. It tells the story of old friends, one of which has been marked for death by a truly insane mob boss played by Simon Yam, those charged with killing him, and then those honor-bound to avenge him. After an incredibly tense opening, they all decide to pull one last job and at least get money for the guy's family before resolving what to do about all this. According to To, it's a film about unavoidable fates, and about making choices regardless. It's a theme that's perhaps translated even in the way the film was made and structured. Certainly, the acting is very strong, the action is violent and chaotic, but not, I think, disturbing to fainter hearts, and the soundtrack puts you in mind of a stylish western. A real winner that provides memorable characters and avoids formula through improvisation. 8 years 11 months ago
