Director Andrew Lau in person for Q&A!
Young and Dangerous isn’t a movie; it’s way of life. A series of 15 films—six movies, four prequels, three spin-offs, and two all-female versions, as well as a parody movie and a reboot—covering the life and times of the Hung Hing criminal triad and the bevy of studly young things who make up its members. The whole thing is the brainchild of Andrew Lau and Wong Jing and the first two movies are the kind of shot-on-the-run flicks that captured lightning in a bottle and became cultural sensations. When the first movie hit it big, director Lau wrote, shot, and released the second in just eight weeks.
