Watched: All About Ah-Long

Today I watched All About Ah-Long. To be honest, I was very surprised by this Movie from Johnnie To. Chow Yun-Fat did a great job but the winner of this movie is definitely the kid.

This movie is a drama about a single father raising a boy who thought his mother was dead. She accidently returned to the families life, causing all sorts of hardships and drama.

The plot isn’t something new, that’s for sure but that didn’t make it boring. What I really liked was the relationship between the father and the son. The cast was good and the score always matched the situation.

If you like HK movies from the ’90, watch it but don’t expect a typical To ganster movie.
