In the vein of crime classics like Mean Streets and Infernal Affairs, the 1980s-New York-set action thriller Revenge of the Green Dragons follows Sonny and Steven, two immigrant brothers who join a Chinatown gang and quickly rise up the ranks, drawing the attention of hard-boiled city cops. After an ill-fated love affair pits brother against brother, Sonny sets out for revenge on the very gang who made him who he is. The film brilliantly mixes the genres of Hong Kong action and New York crime film, and reunites executive producer Martin Scorsese with co-director Andrew Lau, whose film Infernal Affairs was the basis for Scorsese’s Oscar-winning The Departed.
