The Killer - To Tau Village Beach

Right, thanks to Phil, from the excellent Hong Kong (& Macau) Stuff / Oriental Sweetlips blog, the location of the post assassination shoot-out on the beach has been pinpointed. It's a small beach in front of the To Tau Village. It hasn't been covered on Street View (no surprise there), but there's some great pics on Panoramio (thanks to je4son, songallery and thinsing).

  2. Indeed, it's a little gem...

    And, I'm not trying to make you jealous, but I'm just taking a five minute break from packing. In around 48 hours I'll be just across the water, based in Ting Kok Village for a three week stay in Hong Kong. I'll make sure I take plenty of pictures...

  3. I'll break the sad news that the pier has now disintegrated altogether. There are pics on the Facebook page...

  4. This same location was used in Johnnie To's VENGEANCE a couple of years ago. This is the place where Johnny Hallydays is left whith Anthony Wong's children & wife.

  5. I still haven't gotten round to watching 'Vengeance'; the decidedly mixed reviews made me put it on the back burner...

  6. Do it! Dan, I think it is To's best work in many years. Honestly I am not a big fan of his work because all his movies look like the same...Even I dare to say Election 2 is just crap!
    I felt very surprised watching Election. Really.
