    “Love Battlefield” is one of those movies, along with Johnnie To’s crime thrillers, that you wish Hong Kong would do more of instead of indulging in 500 moronic slapstick comedies a year starring the same stable of pop “stars”. A blending of genres, “Battlefield” stars Eason Chan (”Heat Team”) as Yui, an ER nurse who finds life and love hard going after a bad breakup with live-in girlfriend Ching (Niki Chow). It’s bad enough that Yui’s love life is falling apart, but he soon stumbles into the nest of vicious drug smugglers from the Mainland who has come to Hong Kong to complete a transaction or die trying.Read More »
