Storyline

In early 1997, mobsters Kwai Ching-hung, Yip Kwok-foon and Cheuk Tze-keung, whom have never met one another, are all in Hong Kong. Thereafter, rumour has it that Hong Kong's three most notorious mobsters, known in the underworld as the "Three Kings of Thieves", are plotting together to score a final hit before the transfer of sovereignty of Hong Kong. However, none are initially aware of the rumour. Yip is living as a fugitive after a gunfight with the Royal Hong Kong Police. He now makes his fortunes by smuggling counterfeit electronics. Powerful and prestigious in the past, Yip must now grovel to high Chinese officials. Although successful in his business, he becomes depressed. When the rumour comes to him, he feels the urge to give up everything and pick up his gun once again to join forces with the others. Kwai is very cautious and uses several pseudonyms to hide his identity. Although the scale of his crimes is nowhere as large as Yip's and Cheuk's, but he has managed to commit ...

Entertaining enough to give it a try
27 October 2016 | by qeterSee all my reviews

Seen at the Viennale 2016: Three different directors make three independent gangster movies shown parallel in Chu Tai Chiu Fung. But all 3 plots have a common aim: the possible meeting of the 3 to join forces as some sort of super crime power, because all 3 of them have already robbed, kidnapped, murdered, and done black business up to the point that any done crime in the past is nearly impossible to top by one alone. It is interesting how different the 3 directors develop their main characters. One gangster is shrill, the other like an accountant, the third is always restrained. And the viewer gets the feeling a joined crime would never work out positively - to different are the 3 gangsters. The three plots are entertaining and quite good interwoven to get a movie with one single impact. But towards the end all three plots get lost somehow and also my interest on the outcome. A pity, because the final scene is fantastic. But too late. Anyway, good crime movie based on the state of Honkgong before its "independence".
