Closed: Win Johnnie To's Vengeance on DVD

Vengeance.jpgI've been lucky enough to be given three copies of Vengeance on DVD to give away to lucky Filmstalker readers, and it's easy for you to win, just answering one of those super easy competition questions you see every day, no marketing, and just an email, perfect.

Vengeance is the latest from Hong Kong cinema legend Johnnie To who directs Johnny Halliday, Anthony Wong Chau-Sang, Ka Tung Lam and Suet Lam in another strong tale of gangsters, revenge and loyalty, and it could be yours for nothing more than an email.

The film tells the story of a Frenchman who visits Hong Kong for the first time in his life after a violent attack on his daughter and her family leaves her husband and two children dead and her fighting for survival.

She persuades him to swear to exact revenge on the people who did this, however he is a stranger in Hong Kong and knows little about the gangs, the customs, or even the language.

A familiar sound on his way back to his hotel room stops him, and he sees three men exit another room, men with guns and looking every bit the hired killers. He tracks them down and makes them an offer to hunt the people he seeks revenge on.

It sounds simple enough, but complications ensue and it soon comes down to a question of loyalties and respect.

I reviewed Vengeance just recently, which you can read right here on Filmstalker, and I enjoyed it. There's a great deal of style in the film from the action to the quiet moments, and above all there's a lot said with the camera, with characters looks and actions, rather than the Hollywood style of spelling everything out.

Of course if you're a Johnnie To fan then this is for you regardless.

The DVD is presented in 2.35:1 with Dolby Digital 5.1 and English subtitles with a nice Making Of Featurette and trailer.
