Francis Ng Is Spectacular
27 August 2003 | by (www.nixflix.com) – See all my reviews

BULLETS OVER SUMMER and COLOUR OF TRUTH adds proof to my theory that any film where either Francis Ng or Anthony Wong has a major role can't be bad.

BULLETS stars Ng as a lonely cop who finds meaning in life when he meets a pregnant young woman while on a stake-out. The cop and robbers angle is an afterthought, since it's the characters that make this movie.

An effectively sympathetic drama that is nevertheless buoyed by some sudden violence between the cops and the bad guys. The ending is classic Heroic Bloodshed stuff, and many Westerners will find it a bit puzzling. Those used to Hong Kong cinema won't be at all surprised.

7 out of 10.
