Must Watch: First Crazy Trailer for Johnnie To's Vengeance
From Hong Kong filmmaker Johnnie To comes Vengeance, a brutal tale about a French assassin-turned-chef who travels to Hong Kong in order to avenge the murder of his daughter. I owe my thanks to Twitch for first digging up this glorious trailer. Its got somewhat of an old school John Woo feel to it, although that might not be accurate, because Johnnie To has been making films since 1986, almost as long as Woo has. Anyway, if you're a fan of Hong Kong cinema or Johnnie To or just want to see a badass trailer, then watch this. Although, since this is international, it may contain violence - you've been warned!
