Revenge: A Love Story lacks any weak points, excels on almost every level and enhances the Cat III rating with some damn stylish film making, setting it apart from its peers.

Between the stunning cinematography, the impressive fight scenes and the fast-paced plot it's hard not to like at least some part of Once Upon a Time in Shanghai.

If you want to explore Hong Kong's upcoming talent and you don't mind shifting gears from time to time, then this one comes well recommended.

A fine Ching-Po Wong film, with some powerful and memorable moments, but also a couple of lulls that keep the film from reaching its full potential. The middle part, with the narrative reboot, would've been tough for any director to overcome, but Wong really struggled to get the second half on the rails.

Chen Kui-lin goes into hiding after killing a Triad boss. After he is diagnosed with terminal lung cancer, he vows to end his life on a high note. When he goes to turn himself in he notices there are two criminals ranking higher than himself. Before he kicks the bucket, he wants to bring them to justice.

So apart from an intro and outro, we get two separate stories. The highlights of the film are impressive, Wong's a good director and he had an excellent crew at his disposal, but there's a bit too much filler and the runtime is quite long. Worth a watch if you like Taiwanese crime films, but I was hoping for a little more.

Ching-Po Wong's first feature is quite something else. It's a shame it's still not available in any decent format (even the original DVD release looks like a bad VHS transfer), though I assume it may be for lack of a decent source. The film's indie roots are apparent, don't go in expecting a typical Hong Kong movie.

Three characters are getting very close to death and are starting to see the beauty in the morbid. The first is a morgue assistant who has a hard time dealing with his colleagues, the second is a hitman for the local Triad, and the third is a cook who makes prisoners on death row their last meal.

The styling is ruined by the poor transfer, but the soundtrack still shines and the cinematography is interesting, to say the least. The plot is a little meandering but things do get better in the second half. It's a great start to Wong's career, but it's not up there with the rest of my personal favorites anymore.
