find me a great asian crime movie i havent seen!


I HAVE SEEN THEM ALL! i bet you cannot name an asian crime/action or even some horror (even though thats not really my cup of tea, i would prefer more thriller or those trippy type movies like beat takeshi's "Takeshis'" or "Spider Forrest" ect. ect. I have seen pretty much all of takeshi miike's movies, all of park chan wooks, all of johnny to's except some love stories and PTU, most of my favorites are exiled, infernal affairs, confession of pain, jiang hu(amazing), protege, one night in magnok, dog bite dog, election and election 2 ESPECIALLY, kinji fukasaku's battles without honor or humanity, takashi miikes graveyard of honor (yes i know it is a remake i liked miikes better), ect ect. i could make the list go on for pages in pages. so whoever can name a tight ass asian crime/action/thriller movie that i havent seen... you get a cookie!!

well, one from the 1980's that stands out is On the Run, with Yuen Biao which you've likely seen. also most of Ringo Lam's films, especially City On Fire and Full Alert, Victim is also good. and of course all of the Milkyway crime films, you should definitely see PTU, also The Odd One Dies, Too Many Ways to Be Number 1, Expect the Unexpected, The Longest Nite (all produced by Johnnie To) and one that you may not have seen is an early Derek Yee film called People's Hero. then all of Takeshi Kitano's crime films (Violent Cop, Sonatine, Hana-Bi[Fireworks], and Brother, but skip Boiling Point it's not too great). A Bittersweet Life is excellent, and the Pen-Ek Ratanaruang film called 6ixtynin9 is quite good, his style reminds me a little of Kitano's. and most certainly SPL with Donnie Yen and Sammo Hung if you haven't seen it!

The Killer and Hard boiled are great action movies.

To Be Number One is a good one about a real life HK gangster.
