YesAsia Editorial Description

Producer Tsui Hark takes the directing reins from John Woo for the third and final film in the A Better Tomorrow trilogy. A Better Tomorrow III is a prequel to the earlier films, and features the return of Mark, the suave, righteous killer made popular by actor Chow Yun Fat in the original A Better Tomorrow. Still young and without the seasoning which would make him one of the triad underworld's most fearsome killers, Mark journeys to 1974 Saigon, where he hooks up with tough-as-nails gangster Anita Mui. She teaches him the way of the gun, but her former flame doesn't take kindly to Chow's presence around his ex-girlfriend. Making matters worse is a love triangle involving Chow's cousin Tony Leung Ka Fai, and the approaching fall of Saigon. Tsui Hark serves up slow-motion bullet ballet and wrenching melodrama in classic Better Tomorrow tradition, while managing to put his own unique spin on one of Hong Kong Cinema's most beloved franchises.

Chow Yun-fat (The Replacement Killer, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon) reprises his role as Mark who picked up his skills with blazing guns in Vietnam under the tutelage of the tough-as-nails Kit (Anita Mui, Rouge). Kit falls for Mark but the latter, knowing that his cousin Mun (Tony Leung Ka-fai, The Lover) is in love with her, sacrifices his love for her. But the return of Kit’s ex-boyfriend Ching brings things to a head, especially after he bombs Mun’s new garage.

Professional Review of "A Better Tomorrow III (Blu-ray) (Hong Kong Version)"

November 8, 2005

This professional review refers to A Better Tomorrow III (Universe Version)
Tsui Hark and John Woo were already on the outs after A Better Tomorrow II, and when Tsui took Woo's idea of an action movie shot in Vietnam and directed it himself, the writing was on the wall. The two men would collaborate one last time, 1989's The Killer, and after that they would be done with each other.

For A Better Tomorrow III (also known as Love and Death in Saigon), Tsui returned to his home (he lived in Saigon until he was fourteen) for the first time in decades and quickly discovered just how hard it was to make a movie in Vietnam. Equipment didn't work, tanks didn't move, helicopters didn't fly, and the government-supplied pyrotechnics expert killed himself in an explosion while having a cigarette. Today Tsui Hark says the movie was a mess. "Too long," he complains. He shouldn't.

A Better Tomorrow III is the kind of movie that gives pop a good name. Not for Tsui Hark the religious guilt and redemption of John Woo. Instead, his prequel to the A Better Tomorrow films works on the level of grand opera with characters and emotions on a scale only the Metropolitan Opera House could comfortably contain.

Traveling to Vietnam to extract his cousin, Cheung Chi-mun (Tony Leung Kar-fai), and his uncle, Chow Yun-fat plays a young Mark Gor who's never touched a gun. It's 1974 and the world is in chaos: Saigon is about to fall and the Cultural Revolution is raging in Mainland China. The only stability in this fallen world are money and blood debts. Fortunately for Cheung and Mark Gor, Anita Mui, playing a shadowy black marketeer in Vietnam named Chow Ying-kit, takes the two of them under her wing. Mui is the female Mark Gor: white trench coat flapping in the wind, shades clamped to her eyes, an M-16 in either hand, her enemies falling in slow motion before her like snowflakes.

Chow and Anita meet cute in the middle of a gun battle and fall in love; the only problem is that Anita is still devoted to her old lover, Ho, who's been missing for three years. On cue, Ho shows up, Saigon falls, and our heroes barely escape with their lives. "Welcome to our vengeful world," Ho says to Chow Yun-fat as the two square off.

You could swim in the pathos of this movie, it's so deep, but Anita Mui is the real attraction, turning in one of the best dramatic performances of her career. "I worship you more than any woman on earth," someone says to her, and by the end of this movie you will, too.

Could Be Better -- Could Be Worse Customer Review Rated Bad 7 - 7 out of 10
This is not as bad a movie as some say. In some ways it is an improvement with Tsui Hark directing instead of John Woo. It's too bad they aren't friends anymore after ABTII. This prequel is still entertaining with a great cast & a decent story. Anita plays one tough triad mobster girl and Chow is his usual charismatic & self-sacrificing tough guy with a good heart. The gun play is not bad & Chow does a two-gun M16 number this time. We also learn that he really learned to shoot from Anita. Tsui Hark really plays up the corruption in the S. Vietnamese government & military, probably based on first-hand experience.
