The Parkway Theater in McKees Rocks will show the 2010 Korean movie A Better Tomorrow (무적자) tomorrow, May 19, as the first installment of its Asian Movie Madness series. The Korean Movie Database provides a summary of the film, a remake of the 1986 John Woo movie of the same title:
Hyuk and Chul are two brothers who have been separated since childhood. Hyuk, the older one, has now become a weapon smuggling gang boss, while Chul has become a policeman. Hyuk and Young-chun share 10 years of friendship while leading the gang as two aces, but their tight friendship becomes damaged because of a dirty trick played by Taemin, one of the gangsters, while Hyuk wants to escape from the band of gangs. Chul wants to get rid of the gangs. Young-chun wants to reestablish himself. Their relationship gets tangled with deep wounds and misunderstanding. With Tae-min's plot to take hold of everything, their destiny heads for an unexpected ending.
The movie starts at 7:00 pm and is free. The Asian Movie Madness series will be held on the third Thursday of the month. The theater is located at 644 Broadway Ave. in McKees Rocks (map), a few miles west of the North Side.
