Weak Woo-ping Wuxia.
26 July 2011 | by BA_HarrisonSee all my reviews

Director Yuen Woo-ping has been responsible for some of the finest action films to ever come out of Hong Kong, and is renowned in the west for his martial arts choreography for such hits as The Matrix, Kill Bill and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon; coming from such a legend of the industry, Fire Dragon can only be considered a huge disappointment for kung fu fans, its frantic, poorly edited fight scenes not only being hard to follow, but playing second fiddle to loads of painfully unfunny bufoonery.

Brigitte Lin plays Fire Devil (AKA Fire Dragon, Aunty Lu, Sunset), an assassin for evil Prince Six (Lap-Man Sin), who is given the task of retrieving an incriminating letter that has fallen into the hands of good guy Chun (Joe Chu). Masquerading as an injured stranger, she infiltrates the camp of the performance troupe with which Chun is staying, but finds her allegiance to Prince Six waning once she gets to know the enemy. When the prince sends out a second assassin to finish the job, Fire Devil finds herself fighting on the side of her new-found friends.

The film is book-ended with delirious scenes of wire-fu enhanced wuxia action, but only the final battle, with its fiery explosions and impressive three-way sword fight, is worth getting excited about, and to get there one has to endure the worst kind of Asian comedy (childish slapstick complete with plenty of silly facial expressions) and lots of cloying, over-sentimental garbage in which Fire Devil cares for 'cute' orphan TaoTao. For a Woo-ping flick, the fast-forward button has never looked so tempting...

3.5/10, rounded up to 4 for the lovely Chuan Chen Yeh as sexy assassin number two, Snow.
