Legendary director Johnnie To (The Election Trilogy, Triangle PTU) the greatest master of Hong Kong action films since John Woo returns with an instant modern classic compared by Roger Ebert to Clint Eastwood s Unforgiven, VENGEANCE is a visually stunning and gripping gangster tale about honor among thieves and a father determined to avenge his daughter. Pop legend Johnny Hallyday (often called the French Elvis) gives the performance of his life as Costello, a world-weary but dapper gourmet chef who clearly has violence in his past (and future) when he enlists the help of hired assassins to enact his bloody revenge on the Chinese gangsters who nearly killed his little girl. Two brilliantly staged shoot outs by To one in the moonlight, the other at an abandoned dump are merely the highlights of a movie that crosses Memento with a spaghetti western and comes up with this international smash hit.
