Nam opens a bar in Wanchai and continues his rise in Hong Kong's Hung Hing gang. His best friend, Chicken, needs to lie low, so he's sent to Taiwan to work for Lui, leader of the San Luen gang; there, he falls for the aging Lui's mistress, Ting Yiu. When Chicken returns to Hong Kong, he finds Nam in a struggle with long time rival, Fai Fat. Then, Lui shows up, demanding that Hung Hing sell him a half interest in their new Macau casino. When Chiang, the Hung Hing boss, wants to think about it, Lui threatens war, Chicken must choose sides, and Ting Yui sets up a meeting. Chicken's affections, Fai and Nam's rivalry, Lui's greed, and Ting's intentions are on a collision course. Written by <>

One of the HK greats
15 May 2001 | by (Maryland) – See all my reviews

Young and Dangerous is probably one of my favorite series of films I have ever seen. This first installment of the Y&D series is probably the best. The protagonists, (hung hing boys) are played well by Ekin Cheng and Jordan Chan. Francis Ng who plays Liang Kwan is excellent at being sinister. Solid acting all around and the story keeps moving without slowing down.

Great acting, great story, great plot... that's why this film is a Classic.

Some might even consider this "A Better Tomorrow" of the 90s.
