    Shanghai 13 is best in its original Cantonese. It is a Who’s Who of SB and other studios’ legends. The only one who doesn’t get a fight scene is poor Danny Lee (he shoots the wrong person). Legend, Chen Kuan Tai has a “sparring” moment. Getting Mr. Gao to the port to get him out of China isn’t an easy task. I’ve watched this 4 times and still love it, I notice something new each time. The cast is phenomenal. Anyone who loves a good fight scene (Da Wei and CKC at the casino) or one that leaves you scratching your head (Ricky and Ti at the docks), this movie is a must watch.
