A Better Tomorrow 2012

Preview by Jack Foley

THIS explosive action release from Kaleidoscope Home Entertainment is a big budget remake of John Woo’s career defining A Better Tomorrow.

It tells of Hyuk (Jin-mo), who lives the fast life as a high-ranking mobster in Busan, South Korea with his closest pal, fellow mobster Lee Young-Chun (Seung-heon).

Hyuk is haunted by the memory of leaving behind his younger brother Chul (Kang-woo) and mother as they attempted to flee into South Korea from North Korea. Hyuk is set up by the police and jailed.

Three years later, he is released and travels back to Busan to find his younger brother Chul now a high-ranking police officer. Hyuk tries to earn back the trust of his brother, but rejection and betrayal are hard to forget.

Things come to a head when Young-Chun pulls Hyuk into doing one last gig. It happens to be the case that Officer Chul is in charge of, and the three brothers meet again one final time.

With blistering set pieces and stunning fight sequences, A Better Tomorrow 2012 is a must-see for fans of action and Asian cinema. Also available in spectacular 3D, the film comes to DVD and Blu-ray on June 11, 2012.
