Following on from part two
Another selection of crime movies, with a couple of more horror themed titles in there too and what is this, a romantic drama?
Maggie Cheung and Kenny Bee in A Fishy Story, the romantic drama I mentioned above. Extremely highly recommended by Michael at Hong Kong Rewind and Phantom of Pulp and recommendations don't come anymore informed than from those two.
A Bloody Fight, with it's generic title, I expect little more than a generic HK action/crime movie but it has a great cast of old school stars and is heavy on the violence and sometimes that's all you need.
I know little of this late 70's triad crime thriller other than that it has a reputation of being action packed (for it's time), sometimes it's great to take a gamble, you win some, you lose some!
Gunmen, Kirk Wong's 1930's set action film exec.produced by Tsui Hark and with a category III rating. I saw this in the early 90's but haven't seen it since, kind of like a Chinese version of The Untouchables if I remember correctly. It features another good cast including Tony Leung Ka Fai, Waise Lee and Elvis Tsui.
Vice Squad 633, another late 70's crime flick and again one I took a chance on, I lap this stuff up!
The Island, No not the Michael Bay movie but seemingly a mid 80's Deliverance inspired horror, with a cool poster.
The Beasts, Picked this up on reputation alone, a Hong Kong nasty by all accounts.
Keep an eye out for the fourth and final part, featuring a bunch of Fortune Star remasters.
