Wo Hu [2006]

This is a slick and solid entertainment. Director Marco Mak and writer/producer Wong Jing deliver another tawdry melodrama about criminal enterprise in the post-Handover era. Solid, interesting cast does a great job bringing the script to life. This project is ever so slightly marred by a somewhat implausible romance between Eric Tsang and Sonia Kwok that only begins to resonate after the film is over. It resonates enough to warrant a second viewing because Wong Jing's writing is getting better and better. Any fan of Francis Ng Chun-Yu will want to see this film.
