A Better Tomorrow Collector's Edition

4

Before A Better Tomorrow, John Woo was a jobbing Hong Kong director noted for his comedies. One visceral, bloody, outrageous thriller later and he'd established the template for one of the most exciting actioners of the last 20 years - and made Chow Yun-Fat a superstar. Okay, so Yun-Fat only has a supporting role here but, as the crippled best friend of Ti Lung's reformed gangster, the gun-toting star-to-be pinches the whole picture. A worthy progenitor to The Killer and Hard-Boiled.
