A Better Tomorrow ★★★★

John Woo's (heroic bloodshed) movies truly ushered in a new era for action cinema. Chow Yun-Fat is great here, but so are Ting Lung, Waise Lee and Leslie Cheung. Woo would come to refine his "bullets and melodrama" formula with each subsequent movie, but this is already an excellent starting point.

Lou (rhymes with wow!) liked these reviews
