City on Fire



Damn, I need that jacket.

Is there anything better than an 1980's/early 90's Hong-Kong crime thriller with themes of brotherhood, honour and redemption brought together with stylish action sequences and scenes of hard-hitting drama Tonight is a night for asking deep questions it seems, the answer is a resounding no of course. There really isn't anything better than than an 1980's/early 90's Hong-Kong crime thriller with themes of brotherhood, honour and redemption brought together with stylish action sequences and scenes of hard-hitting drama. To quote Chow Yun Fat from A Better Tomorrow 2: Eat the fucking rice! and Fuuuuck Youuu.

City on fire is one of my favorite 1980's/early 90's Hong-Kong crime thriller with themes of brotherhood, honour and redemption brought together with stylish action sequences and scenes of hard-hitting drama. One interesting thing about is that Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs is essentially a remake of the last ten minutes of City on Fire stretched out over the length of a whole film. Ringo Lam did some decent stuff after this but nothing by him beats this film. It should also be noted that Chow Yun Fat is coolest man ever, he's a Hollywood sell-out now obviously but he's a still a legend.
