Movie: Vengeance (復仇) (2009)

"Vengeance" is Hong Kong Johnnie To's 2009 crime thriller. Its very short synopsis sounds like this: "A father comes to Hong Kong to avenge his daughter, whose family was murdered. Officially, he's a French chef . Twenty years ago, he was a killer."

Frenchman Costello (Johnny Hallyday) journeys to Macau after her daughter's (Sylvie Testud) Chinese husband and two young sons were brutally killed by Chinese triad hitmen.

Costello hires Kwai (Anthony Wong), Chu (Gordon Lam Ka-tung), and Lok (Lam Suet) to help him take revenge. Bad news is, a bullet that was lodged in Costello's brain years ago caused memory loss on and off. Adding on to the tension, the man who ordered the murder turns out to be Costello's new friends' boss (Simon Yam)!

Enough said, what happens next is a violent conflict of interests and no one seems to survive.

Not a bad movie. If you love to watch graceful gunplay in slow motion and bad guys drop dead one by one, this movie gives you the right amount of flying bullets, brotherly love, and (fake-looking) splattering blood. Old-timers Anthony Wong and Simon Yam add weight to the movie with their award-winning performances.

Check it out via DVD. I did that 'coz there's no more screening at the cinemas anymore. :)
