| City on Fire (1987)
Director: Ringo Lam
Starring: Chow Yun-Fat, Danny Lee
Chow Yun Fat stars as an undercover
cop who infiltrates a gang of violent bandits led by Danny Lee.
Another brilliant variation on the "loyalty vs. honor" theme by action
director RINGO LAM. Chow was awarded Best Actor in the 1987 Hong
Kong Film Awards.
Chow tried to get the good on some
jewel thieves. He goes so deep undercover that he can no longer get out
and is now seen as a member of the jewel thief team by his own police
Now the only way out for Chow is to
take down the jewel thieves from the inside or get taken out by his
City on Fire is now my second favorite
Chow Yun-Fat movie, this can act! Plus it doesn't hurt that he looks
good with a gun in his hands.
Chow get to be a character that, to me
any ways, is an everyday person. He has a life outside of work that he
would rather live then being a cop. He goes through a range of emotions,
from serious to funny, to happy to scared s.....
One of the great scenes in this is the
end. The police have all the thieves surround, and the thieves finally
learn of Chows secret identity. Mayhem ensues!!
