Chow Yun-Fat

The fun of Let The Bullets Fly comes directly out of the verbal and situational jump rope that everyone involved commits to. It’s formed with Shakespearean-style characters who both seem larger than life and able to lie. After taking down a horse-drawn train coach, the infamous bandit Pocky Zhang (played coolly by writer/director Wen Jiang) finds out that he’s killed the Governor-to-be of a sleepy little hamlet called Goose Town and decides, what the hell, he’ll ride into town claiming to be the man he’s killed. Fortunately, a toady named Tang (Xiaogang Feng) and the poor dead man’s unaffected widow (Carina Lau) want to tag along to avoid being murdered on the side of the road. When they ride into town, they’ll face off against the man who controls the city with a wealthy fist. Master Huang (played with pure genius by Chow Yun-Fat) gives them the proverbial finger by sending his hat to personally greet them, and the escalating game of egos gets started at a gallop.

Woo had already established himself firmly in the Hong Kong scene by the 1989 release of his one-last-job assassin with a heart of gold movie. Starring Chow Yun Fat, the movie is a brutal masterpiece that rightfully garnered international acclaim for Woo. Now, the director will act as producer for a remake. Of course, this has been announced before. A remake was attempted way back in the early 1990s (written by Walter Hill of all people) that was initially supposed to be for Richard Gere and Denzel Washington. It was also announced in 2007 that John H. Lee would be directing with Woo producing. That news from four years ago seems to be repeating here. The story about an assassin trying to cure a woman he accidentally blinded is the same, but the location will be in Los Angeles. Plus, it’ll be in eye-popping 3D. Yes, there will probably be a guy whose eye gets popped out. And it […]
