Pretty decent entry to the heroic bloodshed genre
30 March 2019 | by dworldeaterSee all my reviews

Hero Of Tomorrow is a heroic bloodshed movie that was one of many movies that came out in Hong Kong that tried to capitalize on the huge success of A Better Tomorrow. While this film is not too original and not nearly done as well as the masters of the genre John Woo and Ringo Lam, I thought that this was pretty good. Max Mok and Kiu Wai Miu are lower level gangsters trying to get out of the criminal life, a gambling debt keeps them involved in the underworld which leaves to their downward spiral and bloodsoaked climax. Ka Kui Ho is great as a ruthless triad boss and there are many familiar faces in HK cinema that fans of the genre will recognize. The film is very dark, gritty and grim and ultra violent melodrama that was nicely shot with some pretty wild action scenes. Hero Of Tomorrow is pretty standard for the genre though and is a ripoff of A Better Tomorrow for sure. While this film is not in any way exceptional or original, it is a pretty solid movie that most fans of heroic bloodshed movies should enjoy. If you can accept that nothing about this movie really goes above and beyond average, this is still a pretty solid triad action movie .
