An Antimainstream List of 15 Hong Kong Action Thrilling Movies You Won't Regret Watching


It's been half a year since I watched a lot of Hong kong Movies. The character of Hong kong Movie is quite strong, whether it's romance or thriller, or action. Starting with try over Andy Lau's Action-Thriller entitled Shock Wave (2017),  I'm ended up with enjoying Hong kong Movies. It's quite fun to try something new and good enough, just like Hong kong Movies. The culture, the cantonese lenguage,  the cast which is always the same, in conclusion Hongkong Movie has a striking difference with Chinese Movie.

I've watched a lot of Hong kong action thrilling movies, and I can counclude if in the case of 'theme', there will always 3 big topics: Drug dealer, Robbery, and Terrorism. Believe me, son. In the case of cast, Hong kong Action movies are always about: Louis koo, Andy Lau, Sean Lau, Nick Cheung, or Daniel Wu. Mark my words about that.

There is always 'rat' or 'smuggled informants' as a spice. I don't know, maybe since the success of Infernal Affairs (2002), the 'rat' and spying activities are always recognized as an interesting element. Here we go, after a lot of action thrilling movies that I've watched, I would like to give y'all my list of.. 15 Hong Kong Action Thrilling Movies You Won't Regret Watching

My Review

This movie is quite dramatic. I Loved how the concept 1 live for 1 live creating an existing drama in the main genre of action. The storyline is about hunting the drug dealer from Hong Kong to Thailand, and then some elements such as friendship and family just mixed into the movie. One more thing, the three main casts, Louis Koo, Sean Lau and Nick Cheung are actors who most often perform in the Hong Kong action movie. And they are just playing in the same movie, this movie.
