    High-Octane Gun Slinging … Unabashedly Entertaining– Maggie Lee, The Hollywood Reporter

    A rollicking, violent, Western-cum-comedy that serves many masters, but adds up to an entertaining hot pot of wry political commentary and general mischief.” - John Anderson, Variety


    China’s #1 Domestic Box Office Film of All Time

    Debuts on Blu-ray™ and DVD April 24TH

    Bonus Materials Include a Behind-the-Scenes Featurette

    and Deleted Scenes


    PLANO, TEXAS. (March 12, 2012) – Legendary Asian superstar Chow Yun-Fan (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Bulletproof Monk), Ge You (Farewell My Concubine, If You Are the One 2) and Jiang Wen (The Lost Bladesman) team up to star in China’s biggest domestic box office hit Let the Bullets Fly, debuting on Blu-ray™ and DVD April 24th from Well Go USA Entertainment. Critically-lauded around the globe for its stunning mix of dark comedy and eye-popping violence, the action-comedy was nominated for nine Golden Horse (2011) awards, including Best Film, Best Director and Best Actor (Chow Yun-Fat). In China in the warring 1920s, notorious bandit chief Zhang (Jiang Wen) descends on a remote town posing as its new mayor, an identity that he hijacked. Hell-bent on making a fast buck, he soon meets his match, the tyrannical crazy local Huang (Chow Yun-Fat) as a deadly battle of wit and brutality ensues. Bonus features include a behind-the-scenes featurette, interview with the actors, deleted scenes and an optional new English dub.


    In the lawless land that is rural China in the 1920s, legendary bandit “Pocky” Zhang (Jiang Wen) and his gang stage a train robbery. They are quite unhappy to discover that instead of silver, the only thing left on the train is the con man, Tang (Ge You). Desperate, Tang explains that he’s on his way to Goose Town, where he’s bought himself a governorship. If allowed to live, he will help Zhang assume the governorship in his place … where Zhang can make more money in one month as a corrupt politician than he can in a year’s worth of train robberies. With Tang as his prisoner/counselor, off they go. But neither realizes that Goose Town is already under the iron rule of the wealthy Master Huang (Chow Yun- Fat), whose charming exterior conceals a ruthless, conniving crime lord. As Zhang begins to see how badly Huang oppresses the citizens of Goose Town, he decides to do something about it, and Huang quickly senses a major threat to his empire. Thus begins an escalating series of hyper-violent (and hilarious) mind games between the bandit and the crime lord, while the devious Tang tries to play both sides until he can exit the situation … preferably with a profit. The stakes quickly rise to ludicrous proportions in this masterfully vicious, pitch-black action-comedy (China’s highest grossing film of all time), and you’ll be laughing the entire time as double- and triple-crosses, razor-sharp wordplay, and hundreds of thousands of bullets explode across the screen.

    Bonus Features Include:

    • Making of Featurette
    • New English Dub
    • Deleted Scenes
    • Actor Interviews

    Let the Bullets Fly has a runtime of approximately 132 minutes and is not rated.

    Hard to believe there's a Wen Jiang film I wouldn't buy on Blu-Ray, but I found this one to be a slight disappointment after the genius one-two-three punch of In the Heat of the Sun, Devils on the Doorstep and The Sun Also Rises. Don't get me wrong, it's a good bit of fun and action fans should have a blast with it, but for me it's not a must-own title. Still, I hope it sells well enough to encourage someone to release his other movies.
