Edmund Lee, film editor at SCMP is usually a reliable reviewer and I generally agree with his takes and reviews. His top 5 HK movies of 2019 were:

  • 1) Heiward Mak - FAGARA
  • 2) Derek Tsang - BETTER DAYS
  • 3) Jazz Boon - LINE WALKER 2
  • 4) Oliver Chan - STILL HUMAN
  • 5) Lee Cheuk-pan - G AFFAIRS

I watched all 5 and I didn't care for FAGARA as much as Lee and would probably put in down the order but I can't really fault his rankings other than that.
