A Better Tomorrow
Two friends, Ho (Ti Lung) and Mark (Chow Yun Fat), are triads in a counterfeiting operation who end up doing one more job and what do you know, this one more job gets messier than they had hoped

"The original A Better Tomorrow was a huge hit and remains a masterpiece for a number of reasons: Woos skill at melding violence with intense masculine emotionality; his sense of composition and editing, knowing when to break with reality (with slow-motion, freeze frames and the like) and when not to; a degree of violence that while not exactly shocking after 20 years of martial arts movies, had nonetheless never been quite so successfully adapted to a contemporary setting." - Sean Gilman, Mubi

"The first couple of times that lead flashes in 1986s A Better Tomorrow the shootouts are relatively restrained  an ambush by a Taiwanese syndicate, a kidnapping attempt gone awry  but then Mark, the flippant, matchstick- chewing hood in the duster jacket straight off the back of Alain Delon in Jean-Pierre Melvilles Le Samourai, gets his big number, and theres no doubt that Woo is entering uncharted territory Its not just a matter of getting the job done, but of doing it with style." - Nick Pinkerton, Little White Lies
