I had an opportunity to see writer/director Wen Jiang’s impossibly entertaining action/comedy “Let the Bullets Fly” last summer, and I honestly enjoyed every second of it. Seeing Chow Yun Fat back in his element was refreshing, and it reminded me why I was such a huge fan in the first place. This August, UK viewers will have an opportunity to own the flick when it finally arrives on home video, courtesy of Metrodome Distribution.
Need a synopsis? I happen to have this one on tap:
China, 1919. Bandit Scarface Zhang (Jiang Wen) leads his posse in a fatal train robbery that leaves only Tang (Ge You), a rich man who buys governorships all over China, and his wife (Carina Lau) alive. To save his life, Tang lies that he was only accompanying the new major of Goose Town. Looking for a big payday, Zhang assumes the governorship and turns Goose Town upside down. The problem is that order is created by the town crime lord Huang Si Lang (Chow Yun Fat), and he is not ready to lose his iron grip. Soon, Huang and Zhang are outwitting each other in a violent game, with Tang constantly shifting allegiance to protect his own skin.
Curious to read my thoughts on the flick? Take a look at my review of “Let the Bullets Fly”, which hits DVD on August 27, 2012. In order to bring you up to speed, the U.S. trailer has been embedded below. It’s all sorts of snazzy.
