Vengeance

Vengeance

Directed By: Johnny To


Johnny Hallyday as chef-cum-hitman, out of his element and out for revenge in this latest from icon Johnny To.

A typical triad vs. triad piece, there are nonetheless moments of startling beauty. A set piece where giant cubes of garbage are incessantly rolled towards the protagonists, Katamari-style, is an image not soon forgotten.

Other than these bright flourishes, it’s all pretty old hat. A fairly silly ending involving a shouty, amnesiac Frenchmen looking for the owner of a particular jacket is a bit hard to stomach. Still, it’s a fun ride, and comfortably fits in with other genre pics of its like.

Grade: B
