Chow Yun-Fat And Jiang Wen Let The Bullets Fly

In lawless 1920s rural China , legendary bandit 'Pocky' Zhang (Jiang Wen) and his gang stage a train robbery. Shocked to discover that, instead of silver, the only thing left on the train is a con man called Tang (Ge You).

Desperate to live another day, Tang explains that he's on his way to Goose Town , where he has bought himself a governorship. In return for his life, he will help Zhang assume the governorship in his place, where Zhang can make more money in a month as a corrupt politician than he can in a years worth of train robberies.

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.

Directed by Jiang Wen, who also co-stars, Let The Bullets Fly is China's highest grossing film of all time and is coming to DVD on 27 August from Metrodome.

Variety called it "a rollicking, violent, Western-cum-comedy". What do you think? Is this on your must-see list?

Here's a trailer:
