Summary: a must-see movie.
Portland Street Blues [1998] is a must-see movie. Director Raymond Yip is a product of the Wong Jing school of cinema and does real good work with this spin-off from the very popular Young and Dangerous films that ruled the box office during these pre- and post-Handover years. Sandra Ng was made to play this role and it's hard to take your eyes off of her performance. Throw in early good work from Hsu Chi and Kristy Yeung with plenty of other familiar faces from the popular triad films and you have yourself a compelling, fascinating film. Look for rubbery faced Ng Man-Tat though you can't miss him.
