A Hero Never Dies    (1998)
First film of Johnnie To directed after his declarations about Patrick Yau. Johnnie To announced that he directed himself the three films of Patrick Yau: The Odd One Dies, The Longest Nite and Expect The Unexpected, in order to launch this young director. A Hero Never Dies can be seen as an attempt to prove him paternity on the three films. It is true that one finds the same disillusioned environment, the same photography, the same actors... But the scenario is not very good. A Hero Never Dies is a film for sadists where the heroes are tired and mutilated. One can think that it is a trickery, a meaningless movie... One can like too. The action scenes are once again made by Yuen Bun.
