Big Hong Kong name cast in big buzz movie.


If you are like us, and want to love Hong Kong cinema but can’t because of all the dreck that is released – there might be some salvation in the new big-buzz flick debuting on Thursday called Blood Brothers (天堂口).

Loosely based on John Woo’s Bullet in the Head but decidedly not about Vietnam but based in sexy and stylish 1930’s Shanghai with an all-star cast including Daniel Wu (吳彥祖) and Shu Qi (舒淇) and produced by John Woo himself, this could be the one to watch out for. Yes, we’ve said that before only to be burned – but it does look great from the stills and trailer, and good enough to be the closing film at the Venice Film Festival next month. It does look a bit cliche from the trailer below but everyone loves a good 1930’s Shanghai movie, if only to see the sets and costumes:
