Jing Wong's A True Mob Story

A True Mob Story (1998) is about a bottom rung triad (Andy Lau) who discovers that rising in the ranks of his Triad often comes with a heavy price. Is their really honor amongst thieves? Just how crazy is a gangster named Crazy Ball any way? Does it really pay to be a criminal? Will upholding the law surpass true love? Find out when you watch A True Mob Story? Also starring Gigi Leung, Suki Kwan, Ben Ng with a surprise appearance from Jing Wong's father Tin Lam Wong.

Jing Wong's cash in on the triad movie craze in Hong Kong was a real good entry. He's a very entertaining filmmaker who can make any kind of genre film, but his comedies are by far his best work.
