| A Cast of Morally Questionable Fellows Who Let Money Be The Force That Drives Their Every Move Give This Film A Real Scorsese Vibe
Now in my previous exposure to Asian films I've only seen two films from Hong Kong, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon and Fung-Fu Hustle. Until recently in fact I didn't even know Hong Kong had such a thriving film industry with gangster films at the helm. So I would consider Too Many Ways To Be No. 1 to be my introduction to the genre of Chinese gangster movies. A dimly let subterranean setting and cast of morally questionable fellows who let money be the force that drives their every move give this film a real Scorsese vibe and the dialogue which sometimes slips into clicheland is as cool as Reservoir Dogs. The film contains some of the best experimental movement I've ever seen and I would consider the cinematography to be the best part of the movie. After this I will definitely be interested in viewing more of what Hong Kong cinema has to offer.
