This is hopefully the first Young & Dangerous article to those who haven't the slightest clue about this amazing series of table tossing triads and reoccurring nemeses. Yes everything from triad lackey Chan Ho-Nam to the legendary nose picker - Tai Fai is explained here. Quoted as “A Better Tomorrow for the nineties” Young and Dangerous was originally based on popular Manga comics entitled “Teddy Boy” written by Kau Man. The comics are about a group of young students joining the Hung Hing triad society and their perilous and exhilarating stories of lust, betrayal and gang warfare from Hong Kong’s criminal world. With Stormriders director Andrew Lau at the helm he released "Young & Dangerous" in January 1996. The leading role of Chan Ho-Nam was played by the long haired fresh faced actor Ekin Cheng Yee-Kin (Twins Effect, Legend of Zu). Playing across from Ekin is Jordan Chan (Initial D, Throwdown) as the sexaholic Chicken (Chicken also being a Cantonese slang term for prostitute). The three other members of the group are Yee (Stormriders actor Michael Tse), Chou-Pan (The Blade actor Jason Chu) and his younger bother - Pou-Pan (Legend of Speed actor Jerry Lam). The Story is of our five young students becoming triads of the Hung Hing society after having a nasty tiff with fearful triad "Ugly Kwan" (Francis Ng). The story picks up 10 years later (1996) with Chan Ho-Nam still holding an iron grudge against Kwan. Leading characters Chan Ho-Nam and Chicken find their friendship ruined when Ho-Nam is drugged and ends up sleeping with Chickens girlfriend. Chicken leaves Hong Kong for good. In Young and Dangerous part II film explains you what happened to Chicken when he left Hong Kong and traveled to Taiwan. He is reuniting with his cousin Darky (played by the late great Blacky Ko). In Taiwan he makes some friends and creates some new enemies. The original gang is introduced to a new member of their group – Banana Skin. He bares a striking resemblance to Chou-Pan and the nose picking Tai Fai (Played by Anthony Wong).
Young & Dangerous: The Prequel
With the series new an end after the compelling and exciting “Born to Be King”, Andrew Lau took a step back and decided to film a prequel with another young fresh faced cast (actually being the first movie for half of the leading cast) introducing Daniel Wu, Nicholas Tse, Benjamin Yuen, Yu Ka-Ho etc. They reenact the opening sequence of the original Young & Dangerous where Chan Ho-Nam gets treated to a Coke from Ugly Kwan (Francis Ng even returns to play the brief part). After the incident the movie continues and shows are a darker side to the characters of the popular series. A full review of the movie can be found here.

His final appearance was in Born to Be King where he played the son of the aging Japanese crime lord (played by Sonny Chiba), he was driven to betray his father after he chose Chicken over him. Gigi Lai, Michelle Reis & Shu Qi all have one thing in common; their the ladies of Chan Ho-Nam. Gigi Lai appears in the first three movies and appears as a new character in the last movie. Michelle Reis fills “Eye Candy” void in the fourth movie. The delectable Shu Qi appears in the five and sixth movie. Shu Qi also manages to appear in the Young & Dangerous prequel as Chan Ho-Nam’s love interest, although the characters are unrelated. Spencer Lam has left his mark on the Hung Hing boys too. He joined the group as spiritual guide, yes he was a man of god, yes a priest. Not just any old priest, he was ex-triad (nick named “The Lethal Weapon”), kung fu fighter and soccer player! His daughter Shuk-Fan is played by Karen Mok and is soon beloved by Chicken. She mysteriously disappears after the fourth movie, although in “Those Were the Days” he explains that they weren't right for each other and she moved to Japan to learn Japanese (when in Rome, I guess).

Young and Dangerous Movies (including Spin Offs)Young & Dangerous (1996) Sexy & Dangerous (1996) Young & Dangerous 2 (1996) Young & Dangerous 3 (1996) Street Angels (1996) Once Upon a Time in a Triad Society (1996) Young & Dangerous 4 (1997) Young & Dangerous 5 (1998) Portland Street Blues (1998) Young & Dangerous: The Prequel (1998) The Legendary Tai Fai (1999) Those Were the Days (2000) Born To Be King (2000) There is a sequel to Once Upon A Time in a Triad Society (same title just '2' added), yet it has nothing in common with the first movie, nor the Young & Dangerous series. People may question where films like Sexy & Dangerous and Street Angels have anything to do with the series, but they are only set in the same locations as the movies or feature Y&D related cast members making cameos or references towards characters etc. There is also one last related movie Sexy & Dangerous movie 'Sexy & Dangerous 2', the only relation is through similar title only.
ConclusionIn conclusion this series of glorified triads and enemies continually reappearing from the dead still manage to be entertaining, I can look back on these films and still enjoy them. Sure over time the movies date and the odd performance is over reacted, but heck that’s probably why I love the series so much, Hopefully we’ve enlightened you today.
Plot: After receiving a DVD from 'Ninth Auntie' (Sandra Ng) housewife's and girlfriend of four rowdy men (Eric Tsang, Jordan Chan, Cheung Tat-Ming & Wong Yue-Nam) travel to Macau to fool around behind their partners back, going by the terms "Wife's play so that Husbands stay". So fooling around behind your husbands back is the only way to maintain your marriage? As you can expect the men suspect something's fishy going on and travel to Macau to catch them in the act! Review: In 2003 Edmond Pang the witty and funny "Men Suddenly in Black". In 2006 Zhong Qing debut movie a sequel with half of the original cast returning, with the odds largely against him is Zhong Qing the next Edmond Pang? As you can expect Qing ain't no Pang! Qing does give it a good try though, some parts of the movie are quite funny. Although this movie has introduced movie spoofing, the film frequently spoofs Johnny To's "Election" movies, everything from the Kennel Scene in Election 2 to the Fishing Scene from Election. They also throw in disposable spoofs of Sha Po Lang and Death Note. Apart from movies they also throw in several actor references everyone from Jacky Chan to Philip Chan! Sure it gives out a couple giggles but It hasn't really got anything to do with the movie. Guest appearances include several notable Hong Kong actors so for the women who were looking around here are the list of people they go through; Lam Chi-Chung, Alfred Cheung, Timmy Hung & Carl Ng. Lam Chi-Sin has a cameo as the owner of a porno vcd shop. Ken Wong and Turtle Wong makes appearances as the start of the movie. Tony Leung Ka-Fai appears spirit only, well voice only, portrayed by a golden retriever... Final thoughts, No. 1 was great, No. 2 was not bad, please, no number three.
Plot: Yan (Cecilia Chung) is a young doctor at Kau Kei-Ho Charity Hospital. The Kau Kei-Ho hospital is in a terrible state, the doctors don't do their job, they choose to help the hardly injured patients rather than the serious ones! When patient was comes in after being struck by lightening the doctors and nurses attempt to unload him onto other departments, but no one wants him! Yan finds the sizzled patient and discovers that he is actually man who owns the hospital 'Sir Kau Kei-Ho'! (Lam Kau) He pleads Yan to turn things around, make the hospital a hospital and not an embarrassment! Unable to change things herself she convinces greasy haired slacker doctor Jim (Jordan Chan) to help. Although Jim admits he won't be able to make any difference with out his old colleague Joe. Joe (Ekin Cheng) left the hospital a few years back, Joe had made a pact with Jim. If the hospital demanded reform, they would resign, so Joe resigned where as Jim said he did but he sent a Christmas Card instead. Since then Joe doesn't want anything to do with weak willed Jim. She chose to become a doctor because Joe & Jim saved her life from appendicitis when she was 14. She promised to marry the doctor that shouted "It's not easy being a doctor!", although due to the anesthetic she can't remember which doctor it was. Yan's intriguing story convinces Joe to return to Kau Kei-Ho, although will the 'highest management' allow it? Review: I have to say I think this films a great comedy, it does kind of feel like a series of sketches but works well. Some movies can pull off the crazy over-the-top gags, this movie can! Were No Bad Guys can't unfortunately, I had a soft spot for that film. Ekin, Jordan & Cecilia make a good trio, heck I think the combination of Lam Suet & Hui Siu-Hung was great! I loved the shot where the shadows they were casting were devils! Heck their characters even had amusing names: Leon Lai & Andy Lau! The deal with the Highest Management is also quite amusing, everyone is scared of them and anyone that takes them on ends up in a stretcher! The only person who seems to have the guts is 'Kau Kei-Ho'. There is an amusing storyline about how Yan saved the live of a choking beggar. The beggar now determined to make Yan love him he goes from being a beggar to a wealthy young Raymond Wong look-a-like! But the only thing that never changes it his crotch itch! Final thoughts a great laugh! Sit back relax, laugh and hopefully you'll enjoy!
The last in the Young & Dangerous series and boy is it a treat! Chicken (Jordan Chan) has chosen from the San Luen Gang to marry the daughter of the head Japanese Yamada Gang. The gang is lead by 'The Director' Isako Kusaraki (Sonny Chiba). With this married this will sealed a strong friendship between San Luen and The Yamada Societies. Chicken is also reunited with his old cousin, Blacky (Blacky Ko) appearing from the past Young & Dangerous films. The turns out to be successful and Chicken thinks he's got the easy life now, but it isn't easy, I tell you that! The San Luen gang is now lead by Mr. Lui (Peter Ho). Mr. Lui is the son of the Mr. Lui in Young & Dangerous 2. Mr. Lui is back from the the States with his friend Michael (Michael Tse) and Jason (Jason Chu). Mr. Lui has never liked Chicken since the first minute he saw him. From the first chance he gets he'll frame Chicken or attempt to kill him off. Akira (Roy Cheung) is the foster son of Kusaraki and he wasn't very happy either to hear about Chicken marrying Nanako (Anya). Soon after the wedding Chicken spends a night out with Blacky, Akira stops by one night and ends up raping Nanako. Soon as he raped her he disappears from the scene of the crime and spends most of his time in hiding. But now Chicken has sworn to Kusaraki to kill Akira... What About Ho-Nam!? Well Chan Ho-Nam (Ekin Cheng) is back, but he is really messed up having flash backs of Smartie non-stop. Ho-Nam is still going with Mei Ling (Shu Qi) for the 3rd Year, yet she is causing some friction between them by her continually comparing herself to Smartie. With him being in Tokyo (for Chickens Wedding) he notices a women who is the practically the twin of Smartie! Ho-Nam falls her around like a stray dog until she confronts him. She is a nursery teacher called Rong Yu (amazingly played by Gigi Lai) and a nice little friendship appears between the two. Yet Mei Ling believes things are going down the drain... Apart from Ho-Nams love troubles, he's at the aid of Chicken. Ho-Nam finds out who is setting up Chicken and he plans on exposing Lui in front of his pears before he tries anything else... For the die hard fans the usual branch leaders are back, Sister 13 (Sandra Ng), Ben Hon (Wan Yeung-Ming), but no Tai Fai. Don't worry Pou-Pan (Jerry Lamb) & Big Head (Chin Kar-Lok). Born To Be King is the awesome ending to the Young & Dangerous series. People might miss this by the different title, but it is also known to be Young & Dangerous 7. Number 6 is a prequel starring Nicholas Tse & Sam Lee. This film was filmed differently compared to the other Y&D films, but it was better in my opinion it had a edge to it. The film had tension, action, great theme tune and truly up & coming cast. Enjoy!
Plot: Woody Invincible (Jordan Chan) and his mate Crazy Bee (Sam Lee) are two triad lackey’s who run a bootleg VCD shop in a shopping centre. When picking up their bosses car from the mechanics they accidentally run over a man with a briefcase. When they check to see if the man is alright he plea’s for a soft drink, they find a bottle of juice by his briefcase and give the dying man his last request. Thinking that their thirst quenched buddy has passed on they decide to chuck him in the boot and get back to work. When trying to make some extra money to pay off their debt’s they decide to steal the dead man’s phone and mug one of the workers at the beauty salon (also stationed in the shopping mall). The beautician, Rolls (Angela Tong) has a hunch that it was Woody and Bee that attacked her so she and her friend Jelly decides to treat the fella’s to some Saki and see if they could coax and answer out of both of them. During this period the festering corps in the boot of the car has been brought back to life and has feasted on a security guard passing on this virus bringing the dead back to life. There Zombies Baby! Review: It the past three and half years that I’ve been watching asian movies, I’m sure I’ve never seen a Hong Kong zombie flick. When purchasing a bunch of Wilson Yip movie’s I noticed that he directed to Bio-Zombie, further researched showed that this film had quiet a fan following, rated his second most popular film compared to Sha Po Lang. How could I say no? When watching the film I was expecting it to be a low budget B-Movie gory zombie flick and hey I wasn’t wrong. Jordan Chan and Sam Lee both showed good on screen chemistry in their troubled friendship. Angela Tong also seemed capable of being a decent female lead even with the strange name ‘Rolls’. Another side story is of the ‘sushi boy’, Loi (Emotion Cheung) who works in the sushi bar lusts for Rolls, but finds himself being heckled by Woody. But he soon becomes a Zombie, but he turns out to be one of these ‘Zombies with a heart’, where he saves the leading lady and sacrifices himself to save to the others, Aww isn’t that sweet. There is also the story of the bastard second hand phone guy aka Kui. Kui is basically a pain in the backside and a wimp when under pressure he throws his own with to the zombies to save himself. As you can expect people like him don’t last long in a Zombie flick. Notable guest appearances are made from Frankie Chin playing a ‘muscular security guard’ from Hakkin called Ox. Lam Suet also makes a cameo appearance as a police officer. The film does sort of drag at certain points, I was sort of surprised at the bad ending. Now this here is pretty much a spoiler so if you haven’t seen the movie please ignore this paragraph. When Woody and Rolls makes out of the shopping mall and to a gas station, Woody finds out about the contaminated drink, before he could warn Roll’s she’s just finished having a drink from the infected bottle. Now I thought this was a great twist, now Woody would have to kill Rolls, but instead he just sits down beside her and has a drink as well, Woody just gives up. Then it end’s, what a let down. There is also the alternative ending to the movie where Woody is killed by Rolls at the end, but that ending isn't really any better. Okay back to the review, I did find the game spoof’s quite amusing, obviously spoofing the shoot’em game ‘House of the Dead’, in-which both Woody and Bee are playing in store that night. Plus seeing Jordan Chan drilling into a zombie’s skull is also fun. I’ve realized that this movie has had a great cult following by the Zombie Horror fans throughout the world, which is probably the reason it was voted so highly and maybe why it seemed to be a bit of a let down to me. Overall decent movie, worth a watch and it might give you second thoughts on drinking Lucazade.
