Good story and acting but I expected something different, 3 September 2007
Author: gangstahippie from Canada(Montreal, Quebec)

Rated R for violence.

Hong Kong 1941 is an early Chow Yun Fat film.Today in north America, Chow Yun Fat is known for his action films such as Hard Boiled, The Killer,The Replacement Killers and The Corrupter.I rented this film from blockbuster expecting quite a bit of action.This is not an action film.It is a war/drama film.The film has good acting and a good storyline and people who aren't looking for action would like this film, though there are some fairly violent and bloody scenes.I saw this film about two years ago.The film is basically about the lives of three people during the Japanese occupation of hong kong in the year 1941.Hong Kong 1941 has good acting and a good story but it is a tad bit boring and not what you would expect from Chow Yun Fat.
