“… a wild and boisterous crime drama …” ~ David Ehrlich, INDIEWIRE

“… solid two hours of action and suspense that’s muscularly directed by Lee and stylishly shot …” ~ Richard Kuipers, VARIETY

Directed by Lee Hae-Young (“The Silenced”), “Believer”, the stylish, action-packed remake of Johnnie To’s Drug War, hits digital, Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD October 30 from Well Go USA Entertainment. While technically a remake, Cary Darling of The Houston Chronicle notes that “Lee Hae-Yeong’s gripping retelling … stands on its own and is different enough from the original to make it less a clone and more of a genuflection.” The story follows an investigator who, in an effort to bring down the boss of Asia’s biggest drug cartel, conspires with a lowly member of the gang seeking revenge against the boss. “Believer”, stars Cho Jin-woong (“The Handmaiden”), Ryu Jun-yeol (“A Taxi Driver”), Kim Joo-hyuck (“The Servant”), Kim Sung-ryoung (“The Target”), Park Hae-jun (“Unforgettable”) and Cha Seoung-won (“Man on High Heels”).

On paper I am an Italian living in London, in reality I was born and bread in a popcorn bucket. I've loved cinema since I was a little child and I’ve always had a passion and interest for Asian (especially Japanese) pop culture, food and traditions, but on the cinema side, my big, first love is Hong Kong Cinema. Then - by a sort of osmosis - I have expanded my love and appreciation to the cinematography of other Asian countries. I like action, heroic bloodshed, wu-xia, Shaw Bros (even if it’s not my specialty), Anime, and also more auteur-ish movies. Anything that is good, really, but I am allergic to rom-com (unless it’s a HK rom-com, possibly featuring Andy Lau in his 20s)"
