Trivia

The Chinese title translates to "New - Color of Heroes", which indicates that it is a remake of the original "A Better Tomorrow" (a.k.a. YingHongBoonSik). However, HK cinema defines remake very differently from Hollywood. HK remake often has a completely different cast and a different story line altogether. See more »

Not worthy of Better Tomorrow name
4 February 2003 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

I didn't expect it to have anything to do with the first three movies. I didn't expect the action or the stars to be as powerful. All I wanted was a solid, fun action movie. I didn't even get that! Instead I get another throwaway stupid movie that makes you turn off the DVD player about 20 min. into it.

The "cool" factor is gone. All you have are the typical blue lights symbolizing nighttime and a bunch of guys walking in slo-mo WITHOUT looking cool. Ugh, I usually write reviews longer than this but you get the idea. The typical blurry, fast-forward-punches, blue-lights as nighttime crap everyone ignores....except this has the "Better Tomorrow" name on it! John Woo should make another one in the series just so this cannot be the last one.
