The film is accompanied by a scant few special DVD features.
| Original Score: 79/100
| Original Score: 2.5/5
Better Luck Tomorrow doesn't exploit its characters. Lin and his actors never allow these characters to be nerds. As "gangsters," they're hardly Jackie Chan material.

...the film's several major flaws prevent it from amounting to much.
| Original Score: 5/10
Looks good and sounds good (witness the beautiful "magic hour" sequence). Too bad the film isn't as politically subversive as it thinks it is (or should have been).
It's an Asian world in Justin Lin's Better Luck Tomorrow, a film that challenges stereotypes and throws a monkey wrench in the myth of suburbia and its manicured lawns.
| Original Score: B
