LET THE BULLETS FLY

DIRECTOR: Jiang Wen - CHINA

In remote 1920s Warlord China, a gang of bandits, led by “Pocky” Zhang (Jiang Wen), hijack a train that happens to have the destination town’s new governor on board. When the train crashes, the lone survivors are the governor’s sleazy advisor (Ge You) and his wife (Carina Lau). Zhang, an honorable outlaw, decides to pose as the new governor and share the fortune from the hijacking with the townspeople. But ruthless mobster Master Huang (Chow Yun-Fat) aims to stop Zhang’s scheme, launching an epic battle of both wits and bullets. As action-packed as it is hilarious, Jiang Wen’s film is a throwback to the Hong Kong action heyday of the 1980s and ’90s, with a nod to classic American westerns. The highest-grossing domestic Chinese release ever, this comic western’s gun slinging, story twists, and sharp dialogue provide a highly entertaining ride. (132 mins.)

Filmography: In the Heat of the Sun (94), Devils on the Doorstep (00), The Sun Also Rises (07), New York, I Love You (09).
