A Better Tomorrow II (1987)

A Better Tomorrow II is a 1987 Hong Kong action film sequel to A Better Tomorrow. John Woo returned to direct the film, and once again stars Chow Yun-Fat, this time as the twin younger brother of the character he played in the first film. Chow Yun-Fat would return in the 1989 prequel A Better Tomorrow III.

The following weapons were used in the film A Better Tomorrow II:


Beretta 92F

The Beretta 92F is used by every main character and many of Triad gangsters throughout the film.

Smith & Wesson Model 36

A Smith & Wesson Model 36 is held by Lung Si (Dean Shek) while Ko Ying-Pui's (Kwan Shan) silent henchman uses what appears to be a similar model suppressed revolver to frame Lung Si for murder.
