Colour of the Loyalty (2005)

Wong Jing does it once again writing, producing and co-directing Color of the Loyalty with Billy Chung Siu-Hung. Master filmmaker infuses a standard triad revenge story with heavy handed melodrama to create a gripping, mind-blowing cinematic experience. This movie features industry giant Eric Tsang as a triad boss with a troubling familial situation on his hands that can only lead to a tragic outcome. Look for actresses Suki Kwan Sau-Mei and Lancy who both give outstanding performances working opposite Tsang. Having been a fan of Shawn Yu Man-Lok since I saw his performance in Riley Yip Kam-Hung's Just One Look [2002], it is no surprise that this young man carries this movie to a mesmerizing conclusion.
