Solid action-thriller from John Woo,
This review is from: A Better Tomorrow [2010, Korea][John Woo Remake] (DVD)
This film will appeal to a lot of people. Fans of Korean cinema, fans of Asian cinema in general, and fans of John Woo. There will always be purists who will hate any attempted remake or quasi remake such as this one. But I thought this was a solid effort that didn't slavishly imitate the original. Judged on its own merits, this was a very exciting, well put together film that kept me engrossed the entire time. Character development and suspense as well as the action was all top notch. Highly recommended if you're a fan of Korean, Asian, or John Woo films.
