The Storm Riders (1998)
Reviewed by: j.crawford on 2006-08-05
Teamed with producers Wong Jing and Manfred Wong, director/cinematographer Andrew Lau had been quite prolific during the 4 years spanning 1997 to 2000. After beginning his career in the 1980's shooting films like Where's Officer Tuba? and As Tears Go By, Lau rose to prominence as a director with the extremely popular Young and Dangerous and its wildly successful sequels.

A lot has been written about The Storm Riders, so you may know quite a bit about this film already. I hated it when I first saw it but that had more to do with the pirate video from Malaysia than the actual film itself. Later I saw the film in the cinema. Frankly, I thought it was great! The CG effects were fantastic, used in a very imaginative way to advance the epic nature of the film. This is one of those very rare films that this reviewer likes more and more after each screening.
