I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for a Chow Yun Fat movie that doesn’t suck. After suffering through “Bulletproof Monk” and “Dragonball Z”, I was beginning to wonder if the guy had given up trying to land a quality project. Wen Jiang’s upcoming period actioner “Let the Bullets Fly” seems like the right production for the veteran action star, particularly since it gives him an excuse to be a hard-nosed badass once again. The embedded trailer looks phenomenal, and I can’t wait for this thing to hit Stateside.
Here’s what it’s all about:
Set in China during the warring 1920s, notorious bandit chief Zhang descends upon a remote provincial town posing as its new mayor, an identity that he had hijacked from Old Tang, himself a small-time imposter. Hell-bent on making a fast buck, Zhang soon meets his match in the tyrannical local gentry Huang as a deadly battle of wit and brutality ensues.
“Let the Bullets Fly” opens in China on December 16th. Much love and substantial thanks to Film Smash for the trailer you see below.
