"this cinematic pileup — think Amores Perros by way of The Fast and the Furious and every Roger Corman cheapie you can think of — is as irredeemably absurd as it is watchable. The film offers a glimmer of social commentary tucked between its throbbing musical-and-storybook beats, but what it mostly has to offer are slick surfaces, spinning wheels and a young cast who — whether hanging off one another curbside or bouncing in the local nightclub — unintentionally provide further evidence of pop culture's homogenizing effects."

Gangster was the number 1 box office Malaysian film in 2005.
'A nihilistic blood bath from Malaysia , GANGSTER is a slab of 1980's Hong Kong criminal cool, carved off the bone and served hot. Seething with desperation, it was the number one movie in Malaysia last year by a landslide. But who knows why Malaysians flocked to a movie about illegal street racing, gutter-crawling losers ripping off their dealer and fleeing the country, nightclub assassinations and prostitutes with lethal pimps? Maybe every now and then you have to bathe your brain in bleakness to stay sane. Telling three overlapping stories about three desperate losers who've hit bottom and are running out of air, GANGSTER follows a hooker who plans to rip off her boyfriend, a food stall owner who's borrowed too much money and doesn't know how to pay it back, and an illegal car racer, as monomaniacal as Captain Ahab, who's willing to turn pedestrians into grease spots if that means he can beat the top ranked driver. With three of the lead roles played by Malaysia's DeNiro, Rosyam Nor (that's him times three on the poster at the top of this page) this flick takes every convention from film noir movies, throws them out on the streets of Kuala Lumpor, and picks them up the next morning after a grueling, hellish night on the town.'
