    Lam described Wild City as belonging to a "City Trilogy" along with the films City on Fire and Full Alert. Lam described them as "films, that are all set in Hong Kong and are about people who are lost in the city. In Wild City the theme is about the temptation of money, and how it seduces the protagonists, but also forces them to challenge the plutocracy."

    Reception

    The Hollywood Reporter stated that Wild City paled in comparison to Lam's films from the 1990s, noting that the "screenplay doesn't have the complexity and rich symbolism of Full Alert (1997) and Victim (1999)". The review concluded that " the film is engaging enough to reignite interest in Lam".
