  1. Aida's rating of the film A Better Tomorrow

    unlike some of the commenters, it's not clear to me that this is weaker than hard boiled. the plot and dialogue were poetic, layered and metaphorical and i found the recurring motif of child's play to be especially moving. i also liked the play with color - whites and blacks, good and evil, uniformed officer and gangster, their transmutations, the staining of red blood making such differences hard to discern anyway.

  3. Trunfos's rating of the film A Better Tomorrow

  4. Sơn Phước's rating of the film A Better Tomorrow

    The directing style is not strong. I know this movie is iconic, but The Killer & Hard Boiled are both better.

  5. OldGermanCurrency's rating of the film A Better Tomorrow

  6. Bob's rating of the film A Better Tomorrow

    Beneath highly influential crime film lies a personal story of guilt and redemption that manages to shake the point of view on morality and law. Thanks to the marvelous soundtrack, there's no moment that is wasted - whether it's trying to build a tension, create an atmosphere of metropolitan jungle or unleash bare emotion in all its honesty and sadness. And that takes great performances to be fully experienced.

  8. David Sindmark Hörnfeldt's rating of the film A Better Tomorrow

    I saw this without subtitles in junior high. I don't remember much.

  10. Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film A Better Tomorrow

    A film about betrayals, brotherhood, missed opportunities & the corruption of the modern world. While Woo's film is celebrated for redefining the style & even the language of the "modern" action cinema, it's also a work of great sadness & pathos. The sensitivity shown to its central characters & the calibre of its performances both enriching & deepening our emotional connection to those scenes of balletic gunplay.

  12. Chelsea's rating of the film A Better Tomorrow

    classic, what more could you ask for

  13. Luca Soldati's rating of the film A Better Tomorrow

    La trama procede benissimo con trovate narrative buone che portano al buon finale dalle tinte amare. I personaggi sono persone disperate che non riescono ad uscire dalla criminalità. Ritmo ottimo e ottima cura nelle scene d'azione, che risultano sempre di qualità. i personaggi sono caratterizzati benissimo e hanno un forte carisma. La qualità registica è palese e, mischiando noir e azione, dà vita ad una perla rara.

    un'altra fantastica love story

  16. Ethan's rating of the film A Better Tomorrow

    This is a badass little film from John Woo and this is when Chow Yun Fat started to be badass.

  17. CinemaDead's rating of the film A Better Tomorrow

    Extreme operatic badassery happens, that's all you need to know.

  18. Chihao Tsang's rating of the film A Better Tomorrow

    Still very good string story with a great cast, a Hong Kong classic!

  19. Marco Izner's rating of the film A Better Tomorrow

    3.5 Però vorrei rivedere una versione decente. Ma è possibile che nella mia versione dvd il film abbia le musica di Forrest Gump, Hook e - credo - Top Gun? Ma che è sto scempio? Porco il clero.

  20. Dominic Simard-Jean's rating of the film A Better Tomorrow

    A superbly directed action flick full of humanity. Woo's best in my opinion.

  21. JK's rating of the film A Better Tomorrow

  22. Robertus Alexander's rating of the film A Better Tomorrow

    This is how a fucking gangster film should be.

  23. Clayton Wong's rating of the film A Better Tomorrow

    Raw, gritty, and much like Woo's other landmark films, ahead of its time. While not as kinetic or polished as something like Hard Boiled, it's filled with impressive action sequences, and a great performance by Chow Yun Fat. Sure, the characters and the story get silly and two-dimensional but like many great action films, it may not be a smart movie, but it's very smartly made.

  24. AKFilmFan's rating of the film A Better Tomorrow

    Not quite the perfection of Hard Boiled & The Killer, this early Woo film not only has many of his trademarks but plenty of homages to Melville. While the look at brotherhood & the consequences of violence is examined very well, the standout shootout in the restaurant is etched into my mind.
