Overview
A Better Tomorrow is the film that started it all, full of John Woo's now-classic trademarks of jaw-dropping style, heart-stopping action and gunfire mayhem that must be seen to be believed. Chow Yun Fat stars in this epic story of suave gangsters and renegade cops who discover that in a world bound by honor, revenge comes at the speed of a bullet.

Written, and directed by John Woo, this is the breakthrough film that made international stars of both Woo and Chow Yun Fat, and single-handedly changed the look of action movies forever!
