Enjoyable challenging Chinese western, 17 February 2011
Author: dancram6 from United States

Wind Blast was, for me, one of the more intelligent Asian films of 2010. The narrative does requires you to think and keep alert. While the action guarantees that you do. The desert environment adds a western feel and the sand storm winds of the title paint a monochromatic almost alien backdrop to this Coen brother influenced film. I can see where those more comfortable with a straight forward linear narrative would have problems with this film. I am sorry others didn't get what this film offers but I did. It challenged me, entertained me and left me feeling rewarded for the time spent watching it. I enjoyed letting this movie and its narrative, slowly open my mind to its characters situations and the morale questions they raise. The acting was very good and succeeded in making the characters become important to me. Beside that it was a very exciting ride. Take a chance and give this a try.
