Hong Kong cinema is the cinema of contrasts, often in the same movie but this week, dark is kept to one movie and light within the other. Starting with Corey Yuen’s dark actioner Righting Wrongs where Yuen Biao loses faith in the justice system. And in the second half, the review of Cinema City’s cashcow Aces Go Places. Classic leading man pairing, comedy and internationally flavored stunt work, Hong Kong audiences loved the mix. With Kenny B and Paul Fox of the East Screen West Screen podcast.
