Consensus: Exiled has non-stop action, tension and style -- making it an excellent summer action movie. Johnnie To brings beautiful scenery and camerawork to the film, enhancing the action even more.

A simmering pot of blood and yucks, accented with guitar and harmonica on the soundtrack.

To packs the moments of contemplation with as much suspense as the action sequences and is a master of ratcheting up tension through small details.

Exiled veers on the pretentious ...but the whole thing has such a humor about itself that it's hard to carp about it.

The finale is a slow-motion tour de force that blends style, elegance and nuance of character in showers of blood.

Johnnie To, the director, is highly respected in this genre, and I suppose he does it about as well as you'd want it to be done, unless you wanted acting and more coherence.

Lessons of Darkness

An electric, inventive amalgam of gonzo violence and lyrical sentimentality.

San Francisco Chronicle

Exiled is creative and bizarre, maybe too bizarre, but since most action films adhere to a cookie-cutter formula, its quirkiness is most welcome.

This 2006 Hong Kong-produced gangster film by director Johnnie To, set in Macao, is an entertaining product that presents a powerful artistic vision.

Johnny To's direction is as smooth as a well-cut suit and the violence has a balletic intensity.
