A better tomorrow by John Woo( Visual )

13 editions published between 1986 and 2008 in 6 languages and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Popular Hong Kong genres have been proposed as "a crisis cinema" which allegorically attempts to come to terms with the handover to China in 1997 "by proposing certain strategies for survival and renewal". The "hero genre" initiated by this film is in the forefront of the "survival" cinema. Old and new traditions, genres and gender relationships, both Chinese and Western, are mixed into a hybrid. The gangster world "represents a traditional Chinese family corrupted by Western capitalist values". The theme of honour among gangsters and revenge for betrayal is shared with the martial arts sword play genre. Chinese knightly values of male sensitivity, gentleness and friendship, also drawn from the male bonding films of Hawks and Melville, co-exist with "excessive" choreographed violence. Motifs are drawn from both Buddhism and Catholicism
A better tomorrow II by John Woo( Visual )

4 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Following the bloody climax of the previous film, A Better Tomorrow -- again directed by John Woo -- opens with Sung Chi-hi (spelled Tse-ho in the first film though still played by Ti Lung) getting released from jail on the condition that he rat out his gangland associate and a shipyard owner, Lung (Dean Shek). Chi-ti's younger brother, a young cop named Chi-kit (Leslie Cheung), is working undercover on the case and has already gotten into the gangster's good graces by dating his daughter, Peggy (Regina Kent). Fearing that he might put his brother's life in danger, Chi-hi cooperates with the cops. Meanwhile, Lung comes to believe that he is responsible for the death of a competitor and flees to New York. There he promptly goes crazy while under the care of Ken (Chow Yun-fat), the twin brother of the sunglass and trench coat-sporting Mark who died in the previous film. During a gun battle with the Mafia who tried to blackmail the exiled crime boss, Lung miraculously regains his sanity. Together he and Ken return to Hong Kong to settle a few scores. This film's onscreen mayhem was almost matched offscreen. Director John Woo and producer Tsui Hark had radically different views of how the film ought to progress. As a result, Hark reportedly recut the film without Woo's consent, ending a long-time professional relationship between the two filmmakers -- Jonathan Crow, Rovi"-- http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/better_tomorrow_ii/ (as viewed on March 12, 2014)
