翁維銓首部劇情長片,他曾於1976至77年拍攝毒品紀錄片《白粉歌劇》,《行規》正是他以搜集所得資料,用故事把毒販與警方的關係展現出來的作品。無異於其他新浪潮導演,翁維銓一心另闖新天。仿紀錄片的風格首先遠避了戲劇化和娛樂化的槍林彈雨,而最為人樂道的是大量實景追蹤的情節。警隊狗仔隊的操作、毒販運毒的細節和術語、黑吃黑、插贓嫁禍等等,全部真材實料,以沉實而不賣弄的處理手法觸及整個制度的利益瓜葛。翁維銓一力描寫掃毒警官陳卓和毒販師爺譚的世界,卻揚棄了一正一邪、邪不能勝正的老路,反而細膩地寫出兩者惡性循環、共生共亡的微妙關係。陳卓和師爺譚一西一中,前者是前線精英,上山度宿畫雀,詩意又孤獨;後者侍母至孝,愛子女如命,是極為傳統的中國人。兩位截然不同的人物多番交手,為電影寫下不少神來之筆。

The System is a groundbreaking crime drama that exposes the entrenched rules of the game governing our system of law and order during the colonial era. Writer-director Peter Yung had conducted extensive research on the drug trade for an earlier documentary and he brilliantly funnels his knowledge into the story, making every detail of the film sings with authenticity. Especially captivating is the rapport between his two main characters, one a police officer, the other a mob consigliore . Theirs is an ambiguous friend-and-foe relationship between two professionals, both sandwich characters wedged in the middle of conflicting values and allegiances, both using and respecting each other in a game of cat and mouse in which roles are frequently reversed. The gangster is played by Cantonese cinema icon Sek Kin, who turns in a memorable performance, building on the audience's familiarity with his long-established persona and adding humanity to that persona.
