I spent large portions of junior high and high school watching Chow Yun-Fat kick major ass in movies like “Hard Boiled”, “A Better Tomorrow”, and too many other Hong Kong bullet operas to name. Needless to say, I’m pretty pumped at the idea of him playing a violent crime boss in “Let the Bullets Fly”, an insane action/comedy from director Jiang Wen (who also stars in the film).
If you’re not already excited for this, there is a chaotic new clip that will kick your adrenal glands into overdrive. The sheer number of gunshots in this 90 second clip is awe-inspiring, and when you add random bodies falling from the sky…well, you got me. Hook, line, sinker.
In this pitch-black action-comedy, the legendary bandit “Pocky” Zhang violently crosses paths with the con man Tang, who desperately offers up an intriguing proposition: Zhang will become the governor of Goose Town, where he can make more money in a month than he would in a year of train robberies. But neither realizes that Goose Town is already under the iron rule of Master Huang (Hong Kong action legend Chow Yun-Fat), a ruthless and wealthy crime lord. Zhang and Huang begin a hyper-violent and hilarious series of escalating mind games in this witty, masterfully vicious film, China’s highest-grossing of all time.
“Let the Bullets Fly” blasts into select theaters March 2. Check the official site for dates and cities.
