A big sack of fun is this one, clever, funny and always enjoyable. The story comes and goes a bit too much around the middle, but the final act wraps everything so well. The commie-oriented message, our hero taking away goods from the evil capitalist bad guy and giving them to th...

Jiang Wen's Let the Bullets Fly thinks outside the box when it comes to comedic action films and that works in its favor.
Bandits taking on bandits sums up this film's story, and while it easily pushes out past 2 hours, the eccentric style and swift pacing help move this...

Let The Bullets Fly is unusually complex for a comedy, but it's also one of the funniest movies I've seen in a long time. With a great cast of characters and lots of funny jokes it was all around just a fun experience.

Combining various elements from martial arts flicks, old fashioned period pieces, modern blockbusters, spaghetti westerns, Cohen Brother dark comedies, and even 1930's Marx Brother slapstick comedies, Wen Jiang (writer, director and lead actor) has concocted an epic genre mishmas...

Its befitting that I write as less as possible about "Let the Bullets Fly". Its a careless screenplay that insults its viewers, the kind which might blow up a mine all of a sudden, cause there's nothing else that seems to happen. There must something wrong with the subtitles I ha...
