Wild Search [1989]

Wild Search is not your typical Hong Kong action movie; this is a human interest drama that has Chow Yun-Fat falling for a nice girl, played by Cherie Chung Cho-Hung, who finds herself, her father, and her young niece, played by Chan Cheuk-Yan, in a world of trouble. Direction by Ringo Lam Ling-Tung, who also produced, is up to his customary high standard as he is working from a sharp screenplay by the always interesting Nam Yin. The movie features another kooky killer played to the extreme by the always compelling Roy Cheung Yiu-Yeung. Industry veteran Ku Feng actually steals the movie in his role of the uncompromising father/grandfather.
