A competent and well made homage to John Woo and the original movie
7 May 2018 | by dctr666See all my reviews

So, I'm going to start by saying that this movie is an homage to the 1986's movie A Better Tomorrow. The story goes around two brothers and a friend, in opposite sides of the law, and the ups and downs in their lives.

1986 is one of my all-time favourites, in 2010 there was a korean remake of this movie, very competent as well. This one hasn't got the finesse of Woo's shootouts - that why he is one of the most famous action director in asian/american cinema - and hasn't the "deepness" of the story in the korean version - usually the koreans try to build a solid story, and by doing so, they build characters, as well - but this is really a very good movie. The story is straight forward, the pacing is very nice, there's a lot of action scenes, here, more direct and simple...

So, eventhough there's no way this can match to the original, is, still, one hell of a joy ride.
