Let the Bullets Fly screening at La Elastica August 30

Cine Asie as part of its monthly Asian film screenings program will be presenting Let the Bullets Fly starring Chow Yun Fat, Jiang Wen and Ge You on Thursday August 30 starting at 6:30pm at La Elastica (4602 St. Laurent, 3rd floor).

Reviews for this film have been extremely positive so it’s definitely one to check out. For more info visit the facebook event or Cine Asie’s website.


Updated with my thoughts.

It was entertaining but I feel like this movie was too smart for me. The quick pace makes it a challenge to keep track, let alone figure out all what’s going on at times. The twists and turns come very quick, particularly in the later parts of the film. I think it’s the type of film that requires multiple viewings. You’ll be hard pressed to catch all the details on a first viewing alone and I imagine I’d appreciate it more in subsequent viewings. Very charismatic characters and a fair amount of shootouts.
