Hong Kong Rebels 2014
Stories Forlorn (original title)
1h 25min | Crime, Drama, Thriller | 27 August 2016 (USA)
Struggling to find answers to his brother’s questionable suicide, a sixteen year old aspiring writer is lured into the underground world of Hong Kong, as the Chinese march their way over the border during the last summer under British rule, 1997.
HONG KONG REBELS is an indie thriller with a Hong Kong setting. Unfortunately all of the main characters are Westerners and the political subtext just isn’t that interesting. The story follows a gang of youths as they get involved in the local drug trade; there are a couple of scenes of gangster menace but for the most part this is an indie dud with weak characters and writing.
