Taiwan Cinema: The Valiant Ones

06.07.2014 7:00 pm

The Valiant Ones

Dir. King Hu I 1975 I 102 min.

This is King Hu at his most boundless and his artistic vision at its most rambunctious and even abstract, culminating in one of the most show-stopping film finales ever. The lashings are maximized, the choreography whirs with an excess of flair and invention, and the villains -- in this case a gang of Japanese pirates, including one played by a young Sammo Hung -- are as uncompromising as the Ming Dynasty heroes are fearless.

*Mandarin with English Subtitles
