John Woo’s A Better Tomorrow II sees Chow Yun Fat and Ti Lung return to familiar territory with blazing guns, explosive action and superb high-octane choreography in this sequel to the seminal Hong Kong action flick.
Former criminal, Tse-Ho (Ti Lung) is set free from his incarceration in jail to assist in the investigation of his former crime boss, Lung (Dean Shek), who is suspected of running a counterfeit operation. Though initially refusing, he only agrees so he can keep a close eye on his cop brother Kit (Leslie Cheung), who is working undercover to infiltrate Lung’s organization.
After Lung is framed for the murder of a rival gang leader, he turns to Tse-Ho, who helps him escape to New York where he is joined by Ken (Chow Yun Fat), the equally deadly twin brother of the deceased Mark. Returning to Hong Kong to rejoin Tse-Ho and Kit, they soon discover the true mastermind behind the entire operation, and in true John Woo fashion, set out to take him down.
