Although not strictly a remake (draws from other movies, too, including Killing and Le Doulous, for example), I think you mean RD is a remake of City on Fire, by Ringo Lam. Most of To's work is postRD.

And I strongly second your recommendation of Takeshi Kitano, Sonatine along with the one you mention. And his Boiling Point involves baseball, to tie it in to the sports discussion.
