Category III Cinema: Once Upon A Time In A Triad Society.
Once Upon A Time In A Triad Society (1996) was another entry in the Category III sweepstakes. 1997 was fast approaching and that would mean and end to the Category III genre. Francis Ng stars as a notorious and ruthless triad boss who trusts nobody and back stabs those who, he feel would have do the same thing to him if they had a chance. One day, his enemies try to rub him out for good. But he escapes death and spends some time in a hospital. Whilst he's convalescing, he reminisces about the past and talks about why he became a gangster.
What will happen to this nasty triad? Does he give up the life? Will he treat others with kindness? Who'll run his empire whilst he's out of commission? How does this near fatal set back change his life? To find out the questions to these answers then you need to track down a copy of this violent, bizarre and highly entertaining film. Francis Ng is the man!!
