God damn it. I understand this film has an original title, but it's also really well known outside of Asia as "A better tomorrow" Why the fuck can't I locate this using that name. There's so many fucking films like that on this site, it's ridiculous.
@MrDoog I actually had to watch this film for a film class at my university and there's some literature written about this. Maybe you're watching the film in the wrong way. There's a lot going on in this film in terms of depictions of masculinity. I can recommend some readings if you want to truly enjoy the film.
I can't for the life of me figure why this is on any top list. It is mediocre at best. It's like watching a bad episode of Miami Vice.
