Excellent and underrated Hong Kong thriller
16 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Taxi Hunter is an excellent vigilante thriller starring Anthony Wong and directed by Herman Yau . They also worked together on The Untold Story the same year and collaborated on two more films as well. Regarded as a Hong Kong Falling Down, I find that to be mostly accurate . Anthony Wong plays a very sympathetic and tragic character .When his pregnant wife gets runned down by a taxi driver he makes it his business to kill bad taxi drivers . He is an otherwise very nice , kindhearted man that sometimes snaps at those who deserve it. So Anthony Wong 's character is a noble, yet unstable antihero that is very easy to like. It must be noted this film was based on a real taxi strike in HK where the public was enraged at taxi drivers that overcharge and treat customers poorly . Yu Rong Gong plays a cop and Wong 's friend and Ng Man Tat is also a cop , but is mostly comic relief. Overall Taxi Hunter is an excellent film and Anthony Wong is one of the best actors around.
