An English-Subtitled Trailer for Chow Yun Fat’s Let the Bullets Fly

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.

    Hey I actually liked “Bulletproof Monk” though it could’ve been much better. Also didn’t mind ‘The Replacement Killers” either.

    Almost forgot, liked “Curse of the Golden Flower” and the subtitled version of “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,” and “The Corruptor” wasn’t horrible either. And lets not forget Sao Feng in Pirates 3.

      Sean William Scott completely ruined “Bulletproof Monk” for me. I liked a few of the others you mentioned, as well, but a Chow Yun Fat’s recent cinematic decisions have certainly been questionable. I guess I just miss the days of “A Better Tomorrow” and “Hard Target”.

        And I really did enjoy “The Replacement Killers”.

        Yes those were good times. And “Monk” and “Rundown” were the only two movies I didn’t completely hate him in. But agreed, his greatest stuff so far is behind him. “The Killer,” “Hard Boiled,” and “A Better Tomorrow” are classic badass Chow Yun Fat flicks.

    I completely agree with you Todd. With the odd flash in the pan it feels like Chow has coasted through the years. I pray for the good old times to come back like “God of Gamblers” or the John Woo films. I maybe wrong but it seems like South Korea seems to have the teeth and the bite nowadays. Johnny To was supposed to be remaking Jean Pierre Mellville’s “The Red Circle” which would be so cool if Chow Yun Fat and Tony Leung teamed up for that. I want to see the shit-eating cocky grin Chow used to have while blowing the crap out of people, or the impeccable cool like demeanour in the opening shoot-out in Hard Boiled. The way he kicks up the table and catches his gun. Damn, I empty my nut sacks just thinking about it.
