"Let the Bullets Fly" is funny, exciting, and at 132 minutes, a half an hour too long. It's like that guy you knew in college who told told really great stories but got so wrapped up in his own awesomeness as a storyteller that he never knew when to shut up. "Let the Bullets Fly" is a great little movie inside a weaker bigger movie.

It's still a lot of fun. Almost every character in the film has more than one identity and there are multiple layers of deception going in every scene. Writer/director Jiang Wen stars as "Pocky" Zhang a legendary bandit in 1920s China pretending to be the Governor in order to rob from the rich and give to the guy pretending to be the Governor. He's assisted by Tang (Ge You), the actual Governor whose train is hijacked and wrecked by Pocky in the film's pre-credits sequence. »
