IMDB Rating: 6.9
Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 6.1
Wall Street Journal -
It is marvelously funny - a screwball comedy with more layers than a pearl - and visually sumptuous.
Village Voice -
Comedy and shifting-allegiances intrigue more than compensate for the dearth of rousing action in this 1920s-set film.
A rollicking, violent, Western-cum-comedy that serves many masters, but adds up to an entertaining hot pot of wry political commentary and general mischief.
The Guardian -
Between the kung fu, the gunplay, a gentle romantic subplot and the extreme gastronomy - there's something for everyone.
Let the Bullets Fly (2010)
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.
