The Top 50 Hong Kong Movies of the Decade (#50-41)

EnterthePhoenix

Ladies and Gentleman, I invite you to read this vast list of the best Hong Kong Movies from the past decade. Now let’s clear things up right away, the order of this list has been put together by myself and if you disagree with my opinion e.g. “What do you mean Second Time Around is better than Election: Volume 2!!?1?!!” that is your opinion, this is mine and now we can get on with the rest of our lives.

This list is compiled of the best movies from this decade, not the best movies I’ve seen this decade, so this list will not include Oscar winning classics such as “Stormriders” or “Young & Dangerous IV: Roy Cheung gets reincarnated and no-one notices”

Some notable classics will be missing; obviously I haven’t seen every movie we were graced with for the past decade. If you do have the strong urge to voice your opinion, please leave a comment at the bottom of the page where I will most likely respond and say “UR RONG!!” on a serious note, I would love it if we did get some feedback

Over the remaining weeks I will post 5 articles of our count down leading us from the number 50 spot right down to the best damn movie that has came from this decade!

Now that we’ve gotten past the introduction onto the list! Read the rest of this entry »

Rob-B-Hood (2006)

rob-b-hood

Plot (HKFlix): Slipper (Jackie Chan), Landlord (Michael Hui) and Octopus (Louis Koo) is a ‘dream team’ of “Thieving Musketeers”. They are like a bullet out of a gun whenever an opportunity for a heist comes. However, rape and pillage is out of the question, as their principle is never to intentionally hurt anyone.

Man Yee, sole heiress to the distinguished Ding Family’s fortunes, has given birth to a boy – Matthew. However, he is snatched away by Man Yee’s ex-boyfriend Max (Terence Yin), who in a state of jealous delusion, thinks Matthew is his own flesh-and-blood. An unfortunate accident leads to Max’s untimely death. Max’s father, a mafia boss is out to take revenge, but more importantly, to regain custody of his ‘grandson’.

A reward of 30 million for the kidnapping of a tiny tod sounds like an offer that the thieving trio cannot refuse. However, one thing snowballs into another, landing everyone into a moral dilemma and a dangerous quandary. And adorable Matthew has made his way into everyone’s heart, so they have to choose between the ransom and their conscience. Read the rest of this entry »
