All About Ah Long (1989)

Great drama, fantastic acting
Reviewed by Simon on 30 May 2002

A really solid piece of direction from Johnnie To, and marvelous performances from Chow Yun-Fat, Sylvia Chang and especially the young kid. From a story that Chow and Chang wrote together apparently, so they must have invested quite a lot of themselves in the production (which has very high values all around).

Just a shame about the utterly spurious and unnecessary ending - could certainly have been concluded much better.
