| Chinese Godfather/Casino
One of the best Hong Kong gangster movies, it's also based on a true story. It's the story of a dirt-poor guy name Hao. Him and his gang of friends begin their rise in Hong Kong organized crime by killing a rival gang for Fatty Biao's gang. From this lowly start he very quickly rises to become one of the top 4 drug/gang lord. With very believable acting, an all-star cast, and an unexpected ending that will leave you speechless. A must see if you like Hong Kong films or movies like The Godfather series or Casino even.
