A Better Tomorrow ★★★

"I didn't realise Hong Kong looked so beautiful at night. Such beauty can vanish in a blink. It really isn't worthwhile."

One of the first mainstream John Woo films.

Pretty low on the action, it focuses more on the drama between two brothers falling out. But when there are action scenes, they are done so perfectly that even the bad dubbing in the version I watched couldn't ruin it.

The final fight scene is terrific, but the slow motion fight scene at the start was the stand out of the film.
