so I watched this movie with an extreme bias in mind :lol: cuz fuck, it's like trying to repaint the Mona Lisa. Can't be done.


Instead they take a bunch of Korean badass genres and rework a retelling of ALL the A Better Tomorrows, even the spinoffs and wack sequels.

Like the Jungle scene, instead of being caught up in Vietnam like "Bullet in the Head"


they are in Thailand with a deal gone wrong which was "A Better Tomorrow III" which was supposed to be John Woo's but Ringo Lam went and did it first.



There's the iconic shootout scene where Chow gets revenge but then gets shot in the leg. I comfess this actually looks pretty badass.


Two pistol pumping  :pimp:


I mean, you can't get any manlier than Chow Yun-fat.


but hey. if John Woo is down with it. I'm cool with it.


Go cop it at The Asshole
