YOUNG AND DANGEROUS: RELOADED Trailer Sees History Repeating

James Marsh, Asian Editor
Fresh off making what was essentially a Young and Dangerous style gangster flick with Triad, director Daniel Chan Yee Heng does it for real with the Wong Jing-produced Young And Dangerous: Reloaded. Penned by original scriptwriter Manfred Wong, this reboot of the hugely popular series of 1990s movies - based on the comics of Cowman and Dickey Yau - sees Chan Ho Nam, Chicken and the rest of the boys take to the streets of Hong Kong to avenge the death of their boss, Brother Bee. 

Him Law and Leung Lit Wai embody the iconic roles made famous by Ekin Cheng and Jordan Chan, along with a host of young faces including Philip Ng, Ho Wan Sze, Paul Wong, Jazz Lam and Man Chi Leung. The first trailer has arrived and the results look about as good as was expected. The film is due to open in Hong Kong next month.
Around the Internet:
  • Well there's a poster that won't be retained in the western straight to video releases.

    I truly hope this reboot doesn't suck.

    But why the hell do these guys look more like a boy-band than gangsters?

  • I've seen Tim and Eric episodes with higher production value then this. jesus christ ! the old young & dangerous, being lensed by Andrew Lau has in the very least, always looked slick and well produced.

    i initially wanted to post this on my facebook as a joke , now i realised that this is just sad

    I'm still not happy with the idea of a remake. Though, that's nothing against the remake itself. I just felt that if they were to have continued the series with a new crew of gangsters along with a dash of cameos from the crew of the original icons (Ekin Cheng, Jordan Chan), it would've made for a much more satisfying viewing.

    Nonetheless, this looks as fun as I expected and I cannot wait to see where they'll take the characters this time. And Wong Jing is involved, so of course the gratuitous sex scenes will be par for the course.
