Forced Vengeance - Chuck Norris (1982) - Po Tung Road, Sai Kung

Another quickie here, and back to Sai Kung for a brief shot of the car driving home. It's a night shot but there are some landmarks that made this identification a little easier. On the right is the block of apartments that face the road. I don't know if this block has a name or whether it just goes by its street numbers (which would be 50 -76 Po Tung Road). Anyway, the block (and its unseen neighbour behind it to the right) were built in 1975 - almost old-aged in HK terms!

Another clue is the 3-storey house on the left hand side of the road with the 1st and 2nd floor lights on. This building is also still around - although being a private village house there are no records of when it was built, but seems to have the address of #10 Po Tung Road.

The major difference you can see compared with the modern Streetview capture below is the absence of the apartment blocks in the distance. This is the twin towers of Sai Kung Garden which was built circa 1991 - hence why it was still an open space in 1982.

  1. Fun movie fact: Chuck Norris didn't go to Sai Kung -- Sai Kung came to Chuck Norris!
