Synopsis / Plot

While not a complete misfire, Rebellion is certainly less than one might expect from Herman Yau. Shawn “I used to make a film every month” Yue stars as Po, the humorless bodyguard for triad boss Jimmy (Calvin Poon). On his birthday, Po takes a night off, and that same evening Jimmy gets shot up outside a gang hangout. With Jimmy’s life hanging by a thread and his wife Cheung Wah (Ada Choi, in a ballyhooed screen appearance) on her way back from Taiwan, leadership falls to Po, and the rest of the gang isn’t too happy. Jimmy’s number two man Blackie (Chapman To) is especially incensed, and immediately begins undermining Po’s authority. Po cares nothing for power, and only wants to find out who ordered the hit on Jimmy – and all the obvious suspects are their own allies. Can he find the killer before the gang engages in an all-out civil war?
