Legendary Hong Kong Writer/Director Ringo LAM returns to filmmaking after seven years with the neo-noir action thriller WILD CITY, debuting on Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital HD November 10 from Well Go USA Entertainment. The acclaimed filmmaker sets his sights once again on Hong Kong’s seedy underbelly. In the spirit of City on Fire and Full Alert, Lam’s latest Canto-noir finds unsuspecting bystanders caught in a tangled web of greed and betrayal, their growing anxieties punctuated with sudden bursts of violence. WILD CITY stars Louis KOO (Drug War, Z Storm), Shawn YUE (The Guillotines), TONG Liya (The Taking of Tiger Mountain), CHANG Hsiao-Chuan (The Laundryman) and Michael TSE (Millennium Mambo).
Synopsis: When former cop-turned-bar owner T-man Kwok (Louis KOO) befriends a drunken woman at closing hours (TONG Liya), they soon find themselves targeted both by her former lover—a high-powered Hong Kong attorney—and the thugs (CHANG Hsiao-Chuan) he employs. Once Kwok’s underachieving half-brother (Shawn YUE) and a suitcase full of tainted cash enter the picture, the chase turns deadly, with the brothers’ tense family history coming to the surface as Kwok finds himself torn between the triads and his former police colleagues.
