The truth, out there on the (operating) table: there are no better shots than the ones fired in Johnnie To’s movies. The master of action attacks again with Three, that kicks off with a thug who’s wounded and transferred to the hospital. Three different points of view concur there: a doctor’s, a cop’s and the criminal’s, who wants to escape. Locked up between the four walls of the hospital, To wages a battle about the strengths and weaknesses of the human being.
Born in Hong Kong, co-founder of the Milkyway Image Production Company, a Sitges regular and an essential name in contemporary action movies, he’s directed seminal works like Breaking News (04), Election (05) or Vengeance (09).
