Best HK movie of 86
Danny Lee Sau Yin, is known to most Westerners by The Killer. But in Hong Kong many people know him because of his movies, and not because of Chow Yun Fat or Ringo Lam. Up to date his best efforts from 80's are Law With Two Phases and The Law Enforcer. In fact these two films have very big similarities. Both were written, directed and starred by Lee and produced by Frankie Chan Fan Kei. Both were nominated for best actor award at Golden Horse awards,(Danny Lee won the best actor award for Law with Two Phases at HKFA and Golden Horse Awards.
What i like most in these films and prefer than Killer, Better Tomorrow and others are action sequences and gun battles. They are far more realistic than the one's directed by John Woo. Plus Lee's movies are more violent, adrenalin filled rather than melodramatic. It has a simple but yet serious and interesting script. And most of all, Danny plays his role much better than the most actors of that times. I don't know what more i can write, but if you like 80's Hong Kong movies and music, then you have to watch this great picture.
