What are people saying?

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film Hero of Tomorrow

    While I agree that there are far too many mediocre Triad movies saved by a clincher of an ending, "Hero of Tomorrow" really cements itself as a must-see for 'heroic bloodshed' fans during the last ten minutes. This bravado shootout unfolds on the crowded streets of Hong Kong with some fantastic action beats, great camera angles, incredibly loud gunshot sound effects, and fluid editing.
