A Rip-Roaring Shoot 'Em Up With TONS of Action
2 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A detective (Duan Yihong) and his comrades (including Wu Jing) travel to a desert in pursuit of a contract killer, who is also being pursued by hit men (lead by Francis Ng) hired by his contractor. Over the top and unrealistic, this is a high octane modern western with expertly staged chases, shootouts, and fights. Environments are nice with lots of rocky hills, sand, and even snow. Pacing is about as blistering fast as humanly imaginable, with the entire film basically consisting of one gigantic action sequence. Characters are thin, but this is a rip-roaring shoot 'em up with tons of quality action to enjoy.

I'm not really sure why this film has gotten ignored. Even LoveHKFilm never bothered to review it. It's from the same director who gave us the very cool spy flick "The Message" (2009), so it most definitely deserves some attention. I also have no idea how 70 mental patients escaped their clinics, logged onto IMDb, and then gave this film an average rating of 3.7 out of 10. Anyone who gives "Wind Blast" less than a 5/10 loses all credibility in my eyes. This film does what action films are supposed to do, entertain from start to finish with kinetic chases and shootouts. In all honesty, there's no justification and no logical reason behind the 3.7 rating whatsoever, so don't let that deter you from watching this. It's a lot of fun.
