Gangland bloodbath!
13 December 2012 | by (Land of the dead) – See all my reviews

At the time of it's release, Hong Kong Godfather was heavily cut by the censors, but now, we can finally enjoy the movie as the director intended, in all it's bone breaking and blood splattering glory!

The plot is really nothing new or special (because we have seen similar plots in many gangster films, both in the East and West), but the real selling point of a Shaw Bros. movie are the fight scenes (at least for me) and the film is packed with super brutal, bloody gang fights. The director, Johnny Wang, is well known for putting hard-hitting violence in his films and Hong Kong Godfather is definitely no exception. The violence is very brutal, bloody and gory (as the runtime goes on, the movie always manages to get more violent and bloody), there are also a few bits that might offend the most sensitive viewers. The fights are well choreographed and filled with lots of cool stunts.

If you are looking for an entertaining triad flick (or a cool martial arts film with a good dose splatter), Hong Kong Godfather is highly recommended.
