My Thoughts

Let the Bullets Fly for me was a fun watch, full of comedy, loud gun play, and the back and forth competition between Chow Yun-Fat and Jiang Wen character to see who can out smart who was fun.

I went in not knowing this is an action comedy and finding myself laughing at the jokes and how things played out.  The action was good but wasn’t the amount I thought it was going to be, thinking it would be a more of a shoot em up movie due to the title of the film.But the story and the characters made up for it.

Chow Yun-Fat did a great job, played a role that fit him pretty good. He played a bad guy rocking gold teeth.

The English dubbing is OK the subtitles will be hard to follow at some points as they fly by to fast sometimes

Pros: Funny, good action, great characters, and fun to watch

Cons: Train crash scene CGI was weak(viable in the trailer below), not the amount of action I thought it was going to be, and the voice over for Chow Yun-Fat didn’t fit for me

I give this a 4 out of 5
