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 »

One of the best films by Wong Jing
23 October 1998 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

Although it has nothing to do with the A BETTER TOMORROW series, this movie still packs a wallop. It is a very stylish actioner with a very good performance by Lau Ching-Wan. This movie is sometimes very brutal even though it has been severely cut by the Hong Kong censors probably to avoid a category III rating. Of course, there's plenty of references to the works of John Woo but the director manages to not rip off his style and scenes. Here, Wong Jing told his movie straight-forward with flesh and blood characters and, for once, he avoids his typical low-brow juvenile humour opting for a more realistic and pessimistic approach. Highly recommended.
