  HK's Finest together again
  Once A Thief DVD release
  Once A Thief again joins the forces of John Woo and Chow Yun-fat, this time to deliver a delirious mix of exuberant comedy and hi-octane action in this stylish, thrill-packed, stunt-laced tribute to the classic caper movies of the 1950s.

Chow Yun-fat, Leslie Cheung and Cherie Chung star as Joe, Jim and Cherie, three street orphans who, as children, were adopted by Hong Kong underworld kingpin Chow (Kenneth Tsang). By the time they have reached adulthood the three friends have established themselves as a team of renowned art thieves, stealing paintings to order. When their plans go horribly wrong during a getaway, a priceless painting is lost and Joe is presumed to have been killed. Years later, Jim and Cherie have taken solace in each other and married. But their lives are turned upside down when the crippled and wheelchair-bound Joe reappears, his mind set on exacting revenge on the people he believes set them up.

Once A Thief (cert. 15) will is released on DVD (£16.99) by Hong Kong Legends on 27th December 2004.
