Rare, early Ti Lung title
20 June 2011 | by (Deutschland) – See all my reviews

"Dead End" is a stylish, atmospheric 'young rebel' type film starring a very young Ti Lung, and a young and beautiful Ching Lee. Very similar to "Rebel Without A Cause" in many ways, we find Ti Lung's character angry at the world and his situation, as he jumps from job to job, pissing off a lot of adults along the way. Until a chance encounter with the sheltered young heiress with the vicious and overprotective brother. Brother doesn't think that working man, Ti is good enough for his sister, and goes to extreme lengths to remove the man from their lives. This triggers an explosion of violence that culminates with some hand to hand fighting and a classic shootout in an abandoned junkyard. Much like the 1950's masterpiece starring James Dean, "Dead End" is shot in candy colors, and drenched with a sexy, moody jazz soundtrack. Female viewers will love Ti Lung in this one, and the romance, although predictable, is nicely done. The title is one of the rarest in the Shaw Bros library, as it is owned by a private collector, who refuses to release it to the Western market, and even the Asian DVD is long out of print. It took me over a year to locate a used VCD from Hong Kong, but it was worth tracking down. This is a dazzling piece of cult cinema, and features David Chiang in a supporting role. A must see for all fans of the genre.
