90
It is marvelously funny - a screwball comedy with more layers than a pearl - and visually sumptuous.
80
A rollicking, violent, Western-cum-comedy that serves many masters, but adds up to an entertaining hot pot of wry political commentary and general mischief.
80
Village Voice
Comedy and shifting-allegiances intrigue more than compensate for the dearth of rousing action in this 1920s-set film.
75
Slant Magazine
Let the Bullets Fly is an intentionally overheated and very funny comedy about how the best-laid plans tend to fall apart in spectacular fashion.
70
As an allegory on power, corruption and rough justice, it has flashes of intelligence and political acumen.
67
That dedicated wryness makes the endless twists and betrayals easier to process-these are awful people, but it's sure a lot of fun to watch them fight it out.
60
It's best to just let the silly-to-spectacular set pieces fly by you and-tastes permitting-enjoy the Karo Syrupped ridiculousness on display.
60
A good-natured and highly enjoyable goof.
50
At least 30 minutes and several scams too long, the plot passes from amusing to confounding long before the final double-cross.
50
Los Angeles Times
Even with three charismatic leads, the talky, convoluted nature of the cat-and-mouse between Zhang and Huang and their respective gangs is impossible to follow or care about, and the mix of identity comedy, cartoonish violence, philosophizing and grief over killed loved ones is hardly smooth.
