widow warriors

Postby rarebastard » Mon Sep 04, 2006 1:26 am

i am very surprised i hear very little about this film. it is a re-telling of the classic tale of the yangs. it is directed by none other than wang lung wei. with a very solid cast i feel this is one of his best films at the helm.
the first 30 min or so sets the tone and introduces the characters pretty standard stuff.
(spoiler)the daughter of a crime boss returns from studies overseas and bring a new boyfriend little does she know he is working for a rival gang. he informs the other gang of the crimeboss plans to go see an opera. the boss is assassinated along with his 3 sons leaving their women to pick up the pieces. after that hell pretty much breaks loose and the pace of the film changes kicking into high gear. this is more than a girl with a gun flick it is a well crafted intelligent telling of revenge triad style! check it out if you want to know more.
