To packs 90 minutes of mayhem in hospital
MAVERICK Hong Kong director Johnnie To likes keeping things short and sweet.
Three, his new genre-bending flick, reminds us of his best works Throwdown (2004) and Sparrow (2008), in the same way that it packs stunning visuals and dazzling cinematography into
Three characters - neurosurgeon Tong (Vicki Zhao), police inspector Chen (Louis Koo) and crazed robber Shun (Wallace Chung) - cross paths amid the hustle and bustle of an emergency room.
The hospital's pristine sanctuary swiftly explodes into a battleground of
stress and strife.
Featuring a Mozart riff
that sticks in your head
and a surreal, slow-mo shootout climax, Three
boasts amazing sights
and sounds to behold.
