You’ve seen this kind of stylized violence in other Asian action flicks. It’s amusing at times. But, my guess is that a Chinese audience would best understand the film and what it’s trying to say, if anything.
“Let the Bullets Fly” was a big hit in China, breaking several box office records. It concerns a bandit in the 1920’s who poses as a territorial governor, when a train robbery goes awry.
He learns that Goose Town is already controlled by a wealthy baron (Chow Yun-Fat) and the two men have some bloody dealings while trying to keep a civil face publicly. Fans of the genre may enjoy the bizarre humor. But, the story seemed never-ending to me. Grade: C.
