Watch Vengeance - Alternative Versions.
It is not very often nowadays that you will get to see Johnnie To's new
production frequently in the cinema, compared to his heydays with his
working partner, Wai Kar Fai. Both had churned out several box office
hit and flops during the early decade of the 21st century, and it is
believe that good things are worth the wait. Vengeance is the answer to
To's long awaited latest action thriller, after directing two previous
productions beyond his normal scope of story line.
With his usual suspects (Anthony Wong, Simon Yam, Lam Kar Tung and Lam
Suet), To recruits French rock star Johnny Hallyday to be the leading
actor in the Hong Kong France production. Nominated for Palm D'Ors in
Cannes Film Festival 2009, Singapore has the opportunity to get the
release of Vengeance in its original Cantonese-English version, since
Hong Kong productions are barred from releasing in Cantonese version
due to Singapore censorship regulation. This gives Singaporeans a true
blue experience of the idea and message To wants to bring to his
audience. And yes, it is a must to catch it in cinemas.
Vengeance begins with Costello (Hallyday) seeking revenge for the
massacre of his daughter's family. He recruited three professional
assassins, namely Kwai (Wong), Chu (Lam Kar Tung) and Lok (Lam Suet).
While Kwai, Chu and Lok helps Costello in hunting down the killers
responsible for the massacre, the investigation leads them to the mafia
boss and employer, George Fung (Yam), who is behind the massacre.
Vengeance marks the last chapter of To's gunman trilogy (The Mission,
2001; Exiled, 2006), where the trilogy shares the same trademark of a
mass gunfight, and stories revolving professional killers force to
stand on the side they believed in, or made to believe in. While a mass
crossfire between both conflicting sides is inevitable in To's trilogy,
he never fails to surprise the audience in presenting the gunfight.
Just like the mass shootout at the hotel in Exiled, Vengeance shows us
with the crossfire at the garbage recycle center, where large cubes of
compressed old newspaper becomes the shield for the gunmen.
Also, expect several scenes without any dialog, as To wants the
audience to watch the body language, so as to do the interpretation
themselves. The movie lives to the genre of an 'action flick', where
body language is an action to tell the story.
Hallyday takes the leading role of Castello, which is something fresh
that an audience can look forward to. Here, he is a chef with a past,
where being a former professional killer, he had a short lived memory
as a bullet was left in his brain. This creates a Memento like
scenario, where he tracks down the people looking for using Polaroid
pictures. He has the support of the three killers, who assist him in
tracking down the killers behind the massacre. While there seems to be
some kind of mirror reflection from Exiled, we do not see the fun
elements that exist in Exiled. A sense of sorrow replaced the fun in
Vengeance, where the killers do not kill for brotherhood (which
explains why the fun elements steps in at Exiled), but for the sense of
obligation, which slowly developed to personal revenge.
While Wong and Lam Suet were portraying similar roles in Exiled, Lam
Kar Tung was given more opportunity to explore the role of the killer,
compared to his minor role as a gang leader in Exiled. Similarly, Simon
Yam was reprising the same role he had in Exiled, which makes no
differences in both movies. Michelle Ye and Maggie Shiu, as the two
leading actress, ends up being a sidekick in Vengeance, where Ye plays
a pregnant woman taking care of Costello, while Shiu as the police
inspector handling the massacre. This can be deduced that Vengeance is
more of a masculine thriller.
In overall, Vengeance is one of the few thrillers in 2009 that must not
be missed. If you love an action thriller, don't miss it. If you think
that all Hong Kong thrillers are the same, Vengeance is something new
that you can look at.
