Well here’s for a change, an Asian country remaking an Asian film. The reboot in question is Hae-sung Song’s Korean s 2010 big budget remake of John Woo's 80’s HK action classic...A Better Tomorrow....and Kaleidoscope Home Entertainment are bringing it to the UK on DVD and 3D Blu-ray. Being huge fans of the original we’re bound to be a little biased against a remake - but saying that, reviews on the whole have tipped more towards the positive, and most agree you cant fault it for some full on action.
Time will tell….Our reviews coming soon. A Better Tomorrow streets on June 11.
Synopsis: Hyuk lives the fast life as a high-ranking mobster in Busan, South Korea with his closest pal, fellow mobster Lee Young-Chun. Hyuk is haunted by the memory of leaving behind his younger brother Chul and mother as they attempted to flee into South Korea from North Korea. Hyuk is set up by the police and jailed. Three years later, he is released and travels back to Busan to find his younger brother Chul now a high-ranking police officer. Hyuk tries to earn back the trust of his brother, but rejection and betrayal are hard to forget. Things come to a head when Young-Chun pulls Hyuk into doing one last gig. It happens to be the case that Officer Chul is in charge of, and the three brothers meet again one final time.
