A Johnnie To produced gangster drama directed by Frank Hui, Jevons Au and Vicky Wong, Trivisa tells the stories of three gangster kingpins on the cusp of the Hong Kong handover. The crooks in question all have some form of need or hankering to return to former glory days (naturally reflecting the anxieties of the Hong Kong people in 1997).
There's some good deconstruction of genre tropes here, and some themes that are timely even in 2020, with the overbearing presence of police on the streets, corruption and collaboration between police and triads, and friction between Hong Kongers and mainlanders.
There are compelling performances from the leads, and most impressively, supporting player Phillip Keung, who is something of a sympathetic anchor for the audience in among all of the deeply unlikable protagonists, but the plot never really builds to anything. That's maybe the point, but it doesn't make for a hugely satisfactory watch.
