      Audience Member With multiple Hong Kong gangsters, it is decided who wants power and the person to be in charge. Herman Yau directs a good film with a good story behind it with some good performances. Most of all I only saw this film because Elanne Kwong is in it, and she surely pulled off another good performance. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member It's about time HK gangsters movies spew more vulgarities like this piece. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member E o último do ciclo de Hong Kong. Acima de tudo, coerência - adormeci tambà (C)m um pouco neste filme. Uma história competente de gansters, pouco mais. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member The side cast is a surprise, especially Paul Wong and Jun Kung. Though the twist ending is expectable, it is still not a bad HK gangster movie. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member I haven't seen a great gangster film from Hong Kong since the mid-late 90s. This one certainly brings back memories of the good ol' days. Interesting and thrilling plots with characters with their unique personalities, and at the end, a bomb explodes within the minds of the audiences. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Herman Yau's mysteriously delayed Rebellion finally surfaces, and while the wait in some ways was worthwile, the end result is however something of a letdown. For a movie that's been in the works for so long, Rebellion seems disappointingly hurriedly patched together, and features a suspiciously righteous stitched-on ending, puncturing the marvellously noirish build up. But thankfully there's a lot of good stuff on the way. Rebellion takes place during one night, a narrative devise that worked great in One Nite In Mongkok and PTU among others, and sets the mood rather effectively here too. Rebellion sadly loses some momentum about halfway through, but Yau soon picks it up for a great dark finale in blood. The setting is perhaps an all too familiar one, but Yau's spin on triad politics is entirely his own, and by employing the usual blend of veterans and fresh faced popstars in the cast, Yau makes these cartoon characters work.
