HONG KONG ON FILM, and asked a few Facebook friends who either live in or have visited HK. One friend joked that ALL of HK was a filming locale. At the time, I just thought he was being a smart ass but while in situ, I immediately saw that he was speaking the truth. So, while making our daily itinerary I was able to insert some locales to hit up while on our walkabouts. Does the building above look familiar?
On the left, circa 1992, it was the tea house, where the infamous Chow Yun-fat shootout (my favorite action sequence ever!) took place in John Woo's HARD BOILED. It's located at the intersection of Soy St. and Shanghai St., in Mongkok. Today it has cutesy little puppies painted all over it. Oy vey.
