aka: A Man Called Hero
Hong Kong 1999, 112 minutes
Dir. Wai Keung Lau
In Cantonese with English subtitles
Rating: [M]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Action/Adventure / Martial Arts


Aroview: A typically offbeat HK amalgam of historical saga, martial arts action and CGI special effects.

Set in the first half of the 20th century, this chiefly concerns the progress of titular youth through the years of Sino-Japanese conflict, personified in by an ongoing personal duel with a skilled Japanese swordsman. The story also carries him across the Pacific to America and back, a grand historical sweep that has led to it being one of Hong Kong's highest grossing films of all time.
