Poll: Best of Heroic Bloodshed Films (RIP Ringo Lam)

Hong Kong director Ringo Lam passed away on December 29, 2018, at the age of 63. Along with John Woo and others, he defined Heroic Bloodshed, a subgenre with highly stylized action scenes and themes of honor, friendship and betrayal set in the gangster or cop world of Hong Kong.
