Hong Kongllywood - Great Films that Use Our City as their Backdrop

By Localiiz 16 May 2014
May 16th 2014 Hong Kong's film industry is one of the most lucrative and well-respected in the world. Home to the so-called "Batman Building" and having inspired the awesomely dystopic look of Blade Runner, it's safe to say our city is big on the Big Screen. With the global premier of 'Transformers: Age of Extinction' heading to the territory on June 19th, we felt compelled to compile a show-and-tell of scenes from the most popular movies filmed in Hong Kong, ranging in genre from the action blockbuster to the art house. Click through to see all 11 of our selections!
