One Nite in Mongkok (2004)

Is it really likely that a bunch of people from the same mainland village can come to Hong Kong and cross paths in a deadly triad intrigue? Certainly, it is likely and no matter what evil and dastardly things you may have to do to survive in the city, don't let the folks back home find out.

Award winning writer and director Derek Yee Tung-Sing spins a nightmarish scenario of deadly events days before the Christmas holiday. Feuding triad bosses foster murder and mayhem while conflicted police officers try to broker a peaceful resolution.

One Nite in Mongkok held my interest and was very entertaining. Production values are high and the action scenes are riveting. The cast is outstanding, all around. The film is probably fifteen minutes too long.
