Wire Flying Brotherhood
29 February 2000 | by See all my reviews

Like most Chinese wire-flying costume epics, it's best to "check your brain at the door" and just go along for the ride. What makes "All Men are Brothers" so entertaining is its rich characterisation and elaborate sets.

The story centers around an honest Song Dynasty official, Lin Chong. Lin Chong is a martial arts expert (naturally) and is widely admired (and therefore widely envied). The evil "Great General" Gao Qiu's nasty son is going about the countryside terrorising farmers and raping women. This son eventually forces his attentions on Lin Chong's wife, played by the beautiful Joey Wong. Of course, Lin Chong must defend her honor, which proves politically disasterous.

Like most films in this genre, the plot won't stand up to close scrutiny. The theme of the film is fairly obvious (brotherhood conquers all) but the lack of any subtly is easily made up in top-notch acting, spectacular stunts, elaborate costumes, hearty kung fu music, and the wonderful comraderie between Lin Chong and Lu Da. Lu Da is the definitive drunken monk with a bad attitude. Interestingly, most of the fights are NOT between enemies, but between friends trying to win each other's admiration.

"All Men are Brothers" is a must-see for fans of wire-flying fu flicks. This film is an ideal midnight movie to see with YOUR sworn "brothers" (and "sisters")!
