Young & Dangerous Reloaded (2013)

Young and Dangerous is an older series of HK action movies (from the nineties) that used to be controversial, detailing the lives on triads in a way that I guess is pretty realistic. It's all about easy money; women, and the gangland codex: loyalty, responsibility and their own form of justice.

This movie's a modern take on that old series, maybe a finale, maybe a revival, maybe a remake - but whatever it is it does a great job at whatever it's doing. It makes me want to go back and relive the classics.

The main characters are a bunch of thugs, but not just thugs: they're friends, and though they'll kill a man like it's nothing, there's much more to them then that. At the end of the movie I'm left admiring, definitely not their actions, but their fierceness, their loyalty and brutal honesty. Being a gangster is about really manning up, respecting your elders and doing what you have to do. Even in the underworld crimes are punished, but that's a part of life, they live without regret and take things day by day.

I don't know how much of a real insight this is into the world of crime and whatnot, but it's a fascinating tale regardless. The main character's a born leader, and the rest of them are an interesting bunch of individuals. The fights aren't flashy, they're direct, bloody sometimes, and the pace is laid-back. There's tension, but with a few exceptions everyone still keeps their cool. I haven't seen the old movies so I can't compare this to those, but I will. This gave me a taste for more. Good watch. The poster is totally misleading btw, they're not dressed like that even once.
